Description

Muadjana, significa hermana. Esta fue la primera pieza de formato grande. Una mujer Gambiana, la escogí porque su mirada me pareció noble y muy sonriente. El color del cuadro tiene la calidez de su mirada. Fue un espejo en ese momento para mí.

Muadjana, means sister. This was the first large format piece. A Gambian woman, I chose her because her look seemed noble and very happy. The color of the painting has the warmth of his look. It was a mirror at that time for me.

Bianca Nguema

“I am a painter and despite being born in Barcelona, I consider myself African. My mother was Fang and came from Equatorial Guinea. I arrived in Barcelona aged 12 and was one of the first Black women who stayed to live in the city centre. Through portraits I look for a recognition of the power and strength that emerges from the character in each one of them using colour and brushstrokes in an energetic and visceral way, exploring and drinking their own and shared experiences. I attempt through my work to give a little more dynamism and visibility to this large group which in my country has a clear upward projection but it sadly is still quite silenced. For this, I use pencils, watercolours, acrylics and oil paints, and I love working in large formats."
