Book Tickets

Following on from her impressive entry into the WCAF Open in 2020, Tina Ramos Ekongo has taken up residency in the Pyramid Arts Centre and will present her first solo exhibition as part of this year’s festival. Taking inspiration from the pioneering British Black Art Movement in the 1980s, Tina’s thought-provoking new project presents a ‘clash’ of cultural identity, re-imagining British queens as her artistic heroines, with a vibrant splash of African royalty mixed in.

Tina Ramos Ekongo is an Equatorial Guinean figurative visual artist and illustrator who lives and works in the North West of England. She was born in 1987 in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea and grew up in Spain between Madrid and Zaragoza and moved to the UK in 2011. Tina’s work is mainly portraiture and is very influenced by the African traditional murals on health campaigns and the artwork found in African barbershops and hair salons. Her style and technique is also influenced by the great artist Cheri Samba for whom she has admiration and respect, while the content and the history behind her work is inspired by the feminist approach of the surrealist Mexican artist Frida Khalo. The use of cardboard as the principal medium is a nod to the undervalue of black women within Western societies and their real value as pillars of their communities and a force of change. Through painting them on cardboard, she gives a new value to a disposable material and highlights the exquisite beauty of black women.
