A painter of Martinique origin, Philippe Zami's fame has spread beyond our borders to Japan.
Zami does not hide his attraction for the African land. His painting, made of oil mixed with sand, reminds us of the warm and sensual tones of these villages. His fetish themes: nomads, the mysterious presence of masks, wearers, orchestras, have the incantatory force of Gospels.
Himself a musician, he gives his works a fiery and tonic rhythm; in rigorous compositions, the same vigour and the same dynamics inhabit his canvases.
