Self-assignment – photographing in my neighborhood – artist JoJo Fekwa

I photographed JoJo Fekwa last week who is a painter who has set up in a small park just a block over from where I live in Washington, DC.  JoJo is originally from Cameroon and speaks six languages fluently. That is correct – SIX! – they are English, French, Spanish, and three tribal languages from Africa.  He has lived in the US for about the past ten years, and has a studio up near one of the universities nearby. He gets out and paints in the park for many reasons. He gets a lot of exposure to people, sells paintings, and gets inspired by the people passing by. His positive energy and attitude are impressive. The Washington Post ran this article about him a couple of weeks ago.  Here is JoJo’s website.
