Art and line are intimately linked in Barthélémy Toguo’s work.

In using watercolour or very diluted paint, he fosters a certain fluidity that enables him to compose expressive anatomical structures in which representation takes on an organic quality. In Look at me!, skeletons and plants entwine in a fantastical, macabre dance.
