Angu Walters Studio
There are not a lot of places more perfectly remote where a gifted artist seeking to emerge from obscurity faces greater obstacles.

The African artist 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.”

Long before the war, Angu – who favors traditional African music – was a member of the “Melting Age Band, MAB” led by the late Spee. A large share of his paintings are of musicians.

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.
