Alexis Peskine was born in 1979 in Paris and lives and works between Salvador and Paris. The artist brings his three-dimensional creations to life by using a technique he coined “acu-painting.” His dignified nail-works painted with gold leaf and pierced on coffee-stained wood, inspired by the Nkisi Nkonde (power figures) of the Congo Basin, offer a space of healing and reflection in the face of contemporary violence committed against people of colour.
