Jean David Nkot: We live in a world that is transforming

Cameroonian artist Jean David Nkot’s subjects are painted against a backdrop of maps and borders, as he explored the entangled minds of migrant workers. His work has always centered around the human condition and, following a recent residency as part of the Moving Frontiers project, his work made a natural progression onto the theme of migration. He tells Alex Kahl about his own story, and how his experiences made him want to shine a light on people society often turns a blind eye to.
