Angu Walters in Cameroon Central Africa

From remote Central Africa where a gifted artist seeking to emerge from obscurity faces great obstacles here are paintings by Cameroon artist Angu Walters.

The African artist’s studio is in the NW city of Bamenda which has since 2017 found itself at the very center of a brutal civil war.

Born in 1980, Angu Walters got his start as a student of the noted American-born Cameroonian artist Nzante Spee. Wikipedia characterizes Spee's paintings, which could as well be applied to Angu, thusly, "His style, from cubism to surrealism and addressed to a naïve caricature but full with provocative humour, culminates in a pictorial world where all these expressions are mixed in the so-called melting age aesthetic."

Angu's interest in painting started when he was a boy experimenting with ink from different pen colors, mixed and applied them on torn cardboards, which were sometimes hung on the walls of his mother's sitting room. His mother invited Spee to have a look at what the child was doing with the materials he could find in his milieu. Thereafter, the famed artist took him to his workshop and guided him how to improve his skills. Since then, he has had a professional revolution with much inspiration drawn from his fine arts mentor.

Angu paints in diverse styles, most often abstract figurative and the surreal. In addition to music-themed paintings, his work often focuses on family life and traditional African village life.

His works express surrealism because he believes that his dreams are inspirational to his life and works. Angu believes the family is the foundation on which a successful professional and matrimonial life is built. Many paintings express his special reverence for mothers.

His works are exhibited in galleries world-wide and in Africa at the Cameroon National Museum in Yaoundé. Following the pattern set by his own mentor. Angu has helped guide a number of younger artists, although artist are not very much appreciated in Cameroonian society.
