I was born and raised in Harlem New York 1992, the son of immigrants from Benin. I studied painting at the High School of Art and Design and the Arts Students League of New York. I later received a Bachelors Degree from the Rhode Island School of Design in Film Animation and Video. I live and work out of Brooklyn New York where I'm currently working on a portrait series on the people belonging to the African Diaspora in my home town of Harlem.
