Dominique Zinkpe


(Born in 1969, Cotonou, Benin. Lives and works in Benin.)

Dominique Zinkpe is one of the most recognisable contemporary artists to emerge from Benin. His work is influenced by the country's rich history and his immediate African surroundings. Zinkpè's paintings have a surrealist quality - loose figures battle and swim on the canvas. Nurturing fertile women often appear in Zinkpè's work recalling themes of desire and motherhood. He uses a mixture of oil, acrylics and found objects on his canvas and leaves large areas of empty space.

Dominique Zinkpè has participated in numerous exhibitions, workshops and residencies in Africa, Europe and South America including the Exposition l’Afrique des Routes, Musée Quai Branly Jacques Chirac, Paris France, 2017. He was awarded the Prix Jeune Talent Africa in 1993 and won the Prix Umeoa at the 2002 Dakar Biennale.
