Beninese, 20th – 21st century, male.

Born 1965, in Coué, Benin.

Sculptor. Masks.

Dossou Amidou, while remaining close to the Gelede mask tradition by sculpting birds and chameleons, nevertheless introduces foreign themes, such as boxers or planes. These highly coloured masks thus present a somewhat Mannerist character.
