Faubourg Saint Honoré has definitely become more hip these days with contemporary art galleries joining Talabardon et Gautier and Galerie de la Présidence, Sotheby’s and the Canadian Cultural center. The flower shop Lachaume which moved from rue Royale some years ago has even become good again and Nathalie Obadia opened a new show of Collin Sekajugo,  an artist from Uganda and Rwanda. He reminded me of these fabulous street African photographers exhibited by Magnin-A.

The exhibition is called “We come in Peace” and includes 20 paintings made of acrylic, fabric, wax  and bark. Discovered at the 2022 Venice Biennale in the Ugandan pavilion, Collin Sekajugo was born in 1980 and works on, the cultural identity of individuals. The show features people from Oman, Mauritius, Pakistan Comoros, Bangladesh and Malaysia.
