About Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux
Born in 1995 in the West Indies on the island of Guadeloupe, Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux now lives and works in Paris. At the age of 8, Elladj leaves his native island for the Metropolis with his family. It is a total change, a physical, mental and cultural revolution. Through his works, the artist explores an open and vibrant approach to the relationship of peoples and imaginary. Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux operates a work of experimentation and documentation, focusing on heritage images, symbolic and Afro-Caribbean spiritualities. The artist focuses on the daily life, mythologies, iconography, beliefs, religious and cultural heritage of the Afro-Caribbean landscape. Evoking a plural identity, Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux tries to analyze, deconstruct and capture its fragments and communicating vessels. By merging found or familiar objects in the series of still life and painting, the artist gives us different levels of reading, social and historical. His work is a form of initiatory journey, a reappropriation of an ancestral self that goes through a confrontation with its part of night, before awakening to its own light. A passage from ignorance to self-knowledge that requires a "killing" of illusions. Beyond the physical, beyond the tangible, the painting of Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux is that of a wide open thought, that of the thought in sharing. Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2021.
