Jack Bell Gallery, 13 Mason's Yard, St. James's, London SW1Y 6BU |

An exhibition of new paintings by contemporary artist Marc Padeu. This will be his second solo show with the gallery.

“I want to paint the daily life of the people around me, my family and friends. Since we all live together, I share their moments of joy, but also their sadness. Everything is not perfect, there are a lot of difficulties. However, I don’t feel obsessed with just showing this state of affairs. When I manage to capture a moment of joy, a slice of happiness that is just as perfect. In a way, painting their lives allows me to talk about my own life. I cannot work without historical and religious references in my painting. History is my passion and religious belief has always been very present all around me.” – Marc Padeu

Padeu was born in 1990 in Melong, Cameroon. Upcoming exhibitions include a solo presentation at Peres Projects, Berlin. His work has previously been exhibited at the National Museum of Yaoundé, Cameroon and the National Gallery of Contemporary Art, Cameroon.
