Martial Yapo is a French African Artist born and raised in Normandy, France.
He has a master's in Architecture and has been perfecting his visual art since a young age.
He tells stories through his artwork about his vision and conception of the African diaspora, placing his personal spirituality, African roots, and traditions at a focus point.
His technique is a mix of street art, tribal crafting, graffiti, and African contemporary art. The colorful shapes, collage, mixed media, acrylic, spray paint, and oil make his style unique and deep in meaning.
Martial’s creations are a fine line between who he is as a person and what he wants to represent:
A French-African man that considers his mixed culture has strength and wants to highlight his creative perspective to educate.
He considers that teaching himself and his viewers through visual art crucial historical facts of the black diaspora across world history matters to connect the dots.
He is an urban artist with a 360-degree vision of the creative world.
