The Bridge Gallery is a new art space dedicated to photographers from Africa and its diaspora, investing in blockchain and NFT for collectors.
Five established and emerging artists already make up the Bridge Gallery, founded in March 2022, in this desire to value, inspire, and connect with a new generation of art collectors in the blockchain.
At the heart of this photographic corpus are the new African perspectives of contemporary talents. Sarfo Emmanuel Annor, Asiko, Angèle Etoundi Essamba, François Visser, and Fatoumata Diabaté produce multifaceted works, expressing their aesthetic sensibility through a reflection on the culture, heritage, and identity of the black continent.
Bridge Gallery is committed to advancing their work and value through innovation, NFT, and blockchain to highlight the full cultural and artistic potential of the medium. By entering the art market, the Bridge Gallery participates in the achievement of this new African scene in full rise.
Multiple artistic expressions
Ghanaian artist Sarfo Emmanuel Annor praises the variety and richness of his native culture through color therapy, to better share the stories and dreams of the youth of his world.
Nigerian Asiko works on the cultural and spiritual exploration of his Yoruba heritage. His visual and monochromatic language articulates new ways of understanding the liberating possibilities of diasporic identity.
Cameroonian artist Angèle Etoundi Essamba reflects on the identity of women and questions the complex relationship between custom and innovation, breaking with stereotypical representations.
François Visser is at the confluence of portraiture, documentary, and landscape photography, focusing on the everyday life and beauty found in the sublime, nestled in sensitivity and experimentation.
As for Fatoumata Diabaté, she focuses on women and young generations in Mali between oral traditions, beliefs, and transmission. Everyday objects, improvised masks and fabrics become the symbolic vehicles of a shared living memory.
