About Ludovic Nkoth
Ludovic Nkoth's artistic creations capture the essence of the Black experience with an unparalleled emotional depth that resonates with the diasporic life and the rich history of his heritage. Nkoth’s practice is characterized by a distinctively swirling brush, his use of a layered, vivid palette, and his iconography of figures drawn from both fantasy and memory. Each canvas starts with a wash of pigment that flows in swaths of vivid color, over which Nkoth defines the subject’s posture and features, allowing the initial sprawl to shine through as an inner iridescence. Constructed of fluid, twisting contours, Nkoth’s figures often look captured in the process of formation, reached for as one reaches for a half-collapsed memory or a dream upon waking.
