Koffi Mbairamadji is a native of Chad,
Each one of Koffi’s paintings shown on EnVisionChurch is inspired by a verse from one of the books of the Bible. The artist selected one specific verse and then allowed his imagination to translate this verse into the images, colors, and shapes of his native and the broader African context. Relative to the verse, the paintings at times are vibrant in color and quick in movement; others are dark and broody; still others are serene and mystical. Most of his paintings are acrylic on canvas. He sometimes uses oils on canvas.
Viewing his collection allows the observer to contemplate the richness of the great biblical themes through the eyes of an African artist.
