A dream? Or a new art movement

The Prowess of a Mutant Underdog, Adjani Okpu-Egbe, 2014

Cameroon artist Adjani Okpu-Egbe uses mixed media to reflect on his personal relationships. In The Power of a Mutant Underdog, he depicts his tumultuous relationship with his father, who disapproved Okpu-Egbe's choice to pursue an art over a career in business. Today, Okpu-Egbe uses profits from his art to pay for his ailing father's health and hospital stays, a subject that is also addressed in his paintings.
