WILLIAM ADJÉTÉ WILSON

Born in 1952 in France. Lives and works between Paris, France, Benin, Togo and Haiti.

William Adjété Wilson was born of a French mother and a father from the Guin-Mina people living on the coast of Togo-Bénin. He grew up in Orléans, France and moved to Paris at the age of 19 to study Philosophy and Anthropology. At 18, he traveled to the Gulf of Guinea for the first time and began, step by step, to discover the history of his African families on the West coast of Africa, from Ghana to Nigeria. Wilson began making art as a self-taught artist, exhibiting his work for the first time in 1979. His practice includes a variety of mediums: pastel, painting, sculpture, drawing, collage, textile, photography and video, print and illustration. In the 1980s and 1990s, Wilson collaborated with other artists to create costumes and sets for music videos, modern choreographies, artists books as well as textile patterns, designs, murals, etc. As an illustrator, he worked with the New Yorker in the United States, Libération and Télérama in France, and for many other publications. Since 1983, Wilson has shown his work a number of times in Europe and the United States. It is through art that he intends to built a testimony of his destiny: simultaneously singular and universal.
