Rene jean amba
The artist painter sculptor was born in 1992 in Cameroon.
He began his artistic life early at the age of 10, in Ngoro, where he was bornd,
He was very talented and had the will to study and acquire knowledge in art,
at the Artistic Training Institute (IFA) of mbalmayo that he became acquainted with the artistic world in 2004, from which he graduated in 2011. René is curious, and he listens to all activities that come close to his field. He created his art studio amba-art during the same year.
he is also a member of the international artistic collective INANA NETWORK https://www.inana-network.org/ which organizes and creates artistic residences between local artists and foreigners in Europe with the aim of integration.
Having a very refined taste in visual arts,René continues his studies at the University of Yaoundé 1 FALSH (the faculty of arts letters and humans sciences) in the Department of Arts and Archaeology, where he studied fine arts and art history.
He works in his studies, and collaborates with renowned artists from his country to enrich himself with advices and experience, which has also allowed him to familiarize with several materials. This justifies its multidisciplinary.
In his workshop, the contemporary artist creates forms in clay which he uses to make moulds that will be used to draw wax for casting bronze and/or resin. Plaster, wood and even welded iron often appear in his compositions. . It must be said that the concept is the key word in his work, then comes the material.
His works are very characteristic, powerful, imposing, and rich in content, the artist has been able to create a path between the concept, the material and the spirit that he attributes to his works. Its charm appeals to gallery owners, art collectors, designers of interior/exterior spaces, amateurs and art professionals.
He draws his inspiration from nature, human beings, and everyday life subjects then adds it to (his inner self, this unique moment he feels when creating each of his works ). His work highlights the moral and physical beauty of the human being as living in symbiosis with and surrounding elements. The artist in his production is then interested in the lines and external forms of his subjects such as muscular orientation.
His encounter with the international opens new perspectives. and he pursues his dreams.
Each of his arts works reveals an extraordinary texture combined with a patina that gives them the final touch. As for works made of wood or other materials that can be carved, he practice direct carving or assembly in this case.
HIS ARTISTIC APPROACH
To describe and represent human existence in coherence with nature, has through his works, Rene Jean goes from the concept as main point before all its creation. And in 04 steps he presents us a work created in his art studio.
- development of ideas (concept, subject) creation of lines, forms based on the ideas retained. In this stage it is indeed a question of collecting images or drawing from the lexical field of our main theme.
- arrangement of shapes and images to make compositions and select the option that seems best to us, then define the material and move on to making models
- realization of the final work in desired materials.
- It is imperative or even necessary to go through the model to better judge the forms and proportions at the final scale desired for your work.
