António Ole

Angola, 1951

António Ole was born in Luanda – Angola in 1951. He studied African American Culture and Cinema at the University of California in Los Angeles and has developed for five decades an eclectic work including drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, installation, photography, video and cinema. Antonio is inspired by traditional art as a stimulus to develop a contemporary discourse appropriate to his time and circumstances. The elements the artist uses in his works evoke the colonial period, the slavery, the war, the destruction, the human nature, the ability to resist and to survive.
