Angu Walters is a prolific painter who lives in the African village of Bamenda, Cameroon. He was trained by international artist Nzante Spee and discovered by a local Las Vegas web designer, Chuck Cavanaugh. Cavanaugh brought Walter’s work to the United States and has been exhibiting it locally through its primary home in Las Vegas, the Joseph Watson Collection at the Arts Factory. Walters work deals with the abstract and surreal in his paintings, which focus primarily on the core elements of our lives such as survival and spirituality. He also “paints” music which he claims reflects the happy side of life. Walters believes that his dreams are inspirational to his life and works. His works are exhibited internationally in galleries in Washington DC, Australia, and in the National Museum in Yaoundé.
