In collaboration with André Magnin, African art expert, Perrotin New York is very pleased to present an unprecedented exhibition dedicated to the aloalo of Efiaimbelo, deceased in 2006 and his disciples. Efiaimbelo owes his knowledge and art to his great grandfather Soroboko. Over the years, he developed his practice and passed it on to his son Jacques Jean Efiaimbelo, and his grandson Jean Colomb Efiaimbelo, their turn becoming “disciples” of the art. Today, only five members of the clan perpetuate this unique practice in the same style as their distinguished inspirer.
