Barbara Evina (Whimarts)
Barbara Evina is a documentary artist, in my opinion. Her paintings are scriptures of her history, upbringing and family occasions. Born in Mbalmayo, a small village in Cameroon. Her mother and her younger sibling moved to France, where she grew up in different French cities. Growing up in France, Barbara witnessed a lot of racism, odd situations with her white counterparts and learned to grow a thick skin. Her artworks are deeper conversations she has with herself and societal conventions. Questioning the status quo, finding her way out of adversities, and moving on with confidence.
