Arnaud Ramde’s traditional African art expresses the value of family, love and work.

He uses a mixture of homemade clay and acrylic paint that creates incredible colors. The artist’s body of work overall has a traditionally positive and happy feel to it. He calls his unique texture and dimension “Vie Nenga” which is French for “Life Figures.”

Arnaud Ramde’s subject matter is profound and expressive of his life view. His work is highly influenced by his sculpture background, which he also elaborates on by stating, “While creating art, I go from painter to sculptor and back again.” Ramde uses a lot of warm colors that are fore-fronted by purple and blue tones. The contrast between the coloring is acutely eye-catching and visually pleasing.
