Binelde Hyrcan

Growing up during the Angolan Civil War, Binelde Hyrcan (b. 1983, Luanda, Angola) crosses themes of power, poverty, migration and inequality in his painting, sculptural, design, film and performative practice. The artists hard-hitting themes are delicately negotiated with humor, a seductive method of confronting the troubling realities of developing countries, and in particular Angola. The artist’s contribution to the dialogue surrounding the present refugee crisis provides an important perspective of the countries in question and the journey for a better life.
