About Prince Galla (Gnohité)
Gnohité (Prince Galla Gnohité) is a multi-faceted artist – painter, sculptor, graphic designer and decorator – working in different styles: abstract, figurative and surrealist.
In “From shade to light”, the artist explores contrasts and effects with strong and spontaneous colors. His approach involves painting without the use of brushes. Instead, he uses a rubber air blower and a sponge, well-known cleaning utensils of daily life in the Ivory Coast. This technique allows him to use various colors and pigments and later disperse them on the canvas in the form of a spray. At the essence of his creations, the artist recalls childhood with topics such as innocence, joy, play and complicity. For Gnohité, the child is the model to follow to recreate a spontaneous and joyful world.
