Guy Wouete divides his time between Antwerp and Douala. Born in Douala in 1980, he is a Bachelor of Fine Arts (University of Paris 8). He has also studied Arts and Multimedia at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam.

A video artist, sculptor and painter who also embraces installations and photography, Wouete creates his images following a conceptual artistic approach similar to that of a reporter, albeit leaving behind the reporter’s obligation to refer to familiar images. He confronts the paradox that as an artist he materialises and represents things that can only be experienced as contradictions and transitional situations.

My work is an exploration into the finite and infinite, transcending the limitations of formal I seek to transcribe the spontaneity of emotions, such as the humming of a child while eating, or the powerful gestures of a street sweeper.
