Artist from Cameroon to speak at St. Mark’s on Sunday, Feb. 10

  Jean Michel Dissake, an artist from Cameroon, will be our guest at 9:30 am Sunday, Feb. 10, in our Community Life Center.
We will have a “meet and greet” session with the artist beginning at 9 am.

Dissake will also give a public talk at the Gregg Museum at N.C. State University, along with students from NCSU’s Arts Village on Feb. 14 at 6 pm.
  Jean Michel is an inspiring artist from Yaounde, Cameroon, who creates sculptures from found and recycled materials. The concepts his art conveys are universal messages of unity, love, reconnecting with nature and balance between nature and technology. He wrote and is directing a performance/ceremony called The Rebirth of Nature. A documentary film is being made about Jean Michel and The Rebirth of Nature.

  He works in his studio, Mudiki Free Laboratory of Visual Arts, in Yaounde, and teaches interns and students from University of Yaounde.

  Africa News calls Jean Michel’s art “… new sculptural forms and an ecological discourse.”
