Moses Salihou

Moses Salihou is a Cameroonian artist based in Toronto. He explores the ideas of belonging and existence by creating work that blends elements of portraiture and abstraction. Salihou's thick application of paint creates a textural intensity that mirrors our own internal complexities. By leaving the faces of his subject’s indistinctive, Salihou forefronts their inner psyche.

Salihou has exhibited across the United States and Canada. His work is also in private collections globally, including Europe, New Zealand, Africa, Asia, Canada, and the US.

We were introduced to Salihou through our partnership with BAND Gallery when Nicholas Metivier Gallery hosted a preview of his exhibition, Essence.
