MAURICE MBOA

Maurice Mboa is a Geneva-based artist from Cameroon born in 1981. He works mainly on thin metal sheets imported from Africa which he paints, sands, scratches, polishes, carves and burns to create unique works. His rich cosmogony is rooted in both radical life experiences of survival as well as the training he received from his grandmother in Cameroon, a traditional healer. He has exhibited in Cameroon, Switzerland and other European countries.

In Spring 2021, Maurice Mboa presented Superlife at Foreign Agent, which was his first solo show in Switzerland since 2017.
