Louis Masai explores the concept of human as animal through the painting of anthropomorphised creatures adorning them with sentiment, attributes and paraphernalia of the modern world.

For his solo show at Nancy Victor, Louis is presenting a collection of new works which explore ways to merge animal and fabric. Focusing on African fabric patterns, the works take form from the mediums of paint, ink, sculpture, prints, and wood/leather cuts.

Masai believes the greatest distinction between man and animal is our lack of colour, and pattern. The animal kingdom is full of incredible colours and elaborate patterns. Mankind has adorned themselves in garments that mimic this attribute. AfroFabRicatiOn explores giving the animal, the fabric patterns. In doing so the viewer questions why the animal has been adorned with this human textile and in turn remembers that we don't process this flamboyant look without first creating it.
