  • Provenance
    Acquired from Magidson Fine Arts, NYC, 1993;
    A private collection.

    Born in Luanda, Antonio Ole left Angola soon after independence in 1974 for the United States. It was there that he studied African American culture and cinema at the University of California, Los Angeles and film at the Center for Advanced Film and Television Studies, American Film Institute, Los Angeles. His work during this time often had a relation to his childhood in Angola, and its history with slavery and colonialism. By 1984, Ole had his first major international art exhibition at the Museum of African American Art in Los Angeles. He continued to work in the US, executing the present lot in New York in 1993. Ole also represented Angola in the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013.
