Eric Magassa "Black Magic" - Collage on archival pigment paper, 45 x 62 cm, 2016



ERIC MAGASSA

(Sweden, 1972)



Eric Magassa is one of those very few artists whose practice can be impressively diversified in the media as much as solid in its vast complexity. His capacity of working with completely different techniques, of letting himself wander through the realm of experimentation and at the same time never lose his path is something rare to witness. The work of Eric Magassa speaks the tongue of colors, surfaces, abstract geometries and figuration, and it draws inexhaustible inspiration form the African art and culture challenging and juxtaposing it with a deep knowledge and insight on the Modern and Contemporary Western art tradition with the most intriguing results.

Eric Magassa spent most of his youth moving back and forth between Gothenburg and Paris with his Swedish mother and French father of Senegalese and Malian descent. As a student Magassa subsequently lived in London and New York to study at Central Saint Martins and The Art Students League of New York. His works stem from experiments with different media ranging from paintings to drawings, sculptures, collages, videos and textiles.
