Talle Bamazi

Born in northern Togo, (West Africa) into the Kabiye ethnic group, Bamazi began his artistic career as an apprentice to his uncle, a traditional Togolese artist. Although he studied architecture in Lomé, he rapidly returned to painting, and developed his own distinctive style bridging traditional African and contemporary modern art. After moving to the United States, he studied at the Art Students League of New York and earned a MFA at the New York Academy of Art.  He is currently the lead artist-in-residence at the King Arts Complex, where his monumental series of life-sized portraits of Columbus-area black artists, formerly featured at the Columbus Museum of Art, now hangs in the historic Pythian theater
