Description

Ella es Lourdes y Nsang es su nombre de tribu. Es Fang de Guinea Ecuatorial, lleva muchos años en Barcelona, madre soltera y con una fuerza alucinante, es una muy buena amiga, y para es una de las conexiones directas con mi pueblo raíz. Este cuadro en realidad en mi interior se llama Dreaming Africa, y mientras lo hacía sentí por primera vez un anhelo fuerte hacia la tierra de mi madre.

She is Lourdes and Nsang is her tribe name. She is Fang from Equatorial Guinea, she has been in Barcelona for many years, a single mother with an amazing strength, she is a very good friend, and a direct connection with my hometown. This painting in reality inside me is called Dreaming Africa, and while I was doing it I felt for the first time a strong longing towards my mother’s land.

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."
