Documenting the journey of a Cameroonian filmmaker
This is Okpu Adjani Klinsmann, a soldier with a passion and talent for the Arts. Cameroonian-born Klinsmann who currently resides in the UK has been dubbed the talent to look out for in the Art World.
klinsmann’s art first caught connoisseurs eyes when he submitted his work at the revered Saatchi Gallery competition in the UK. His use of hand-made strings and sticks in his paintings was considered unique and avant-garde. He undoubtedly impressed the London Art scene and since then his exhibitions have grown from strength to strength
In his own words, Klinsmann describes painting as “my raison d’être, I firmly believe he who dares wins” To further describe his fearlessness in his art, he says “I don’t like limitations. I draw inspiration from the environment, culture, politics, religion, African tradition, anything that captures my interest.”

Wow, just wow! I’m not an art connoisseur but I admire Artists so much and it is interesting that every piece of art’s interpretation is subjective. Beautiful works bro! May the galaxy be your limit.
