Tesprit, or Foli Kossi Gérard Tete, is a self-taught artist born in 1994 in Lomé (Togo). Tesprit has been drawing since childhood before learning to paint alongside his brother-in-law. With the 2020 pandemic depriving him of his resources, he turns to recycling used flip-flops and sandals that he sculpts and assembles to make portraits. The artist has already benefited from two personal exhibitions in 2021, one organized by the French Institute of Togo and the other by Soview gallery in Accra (Ghana). One of his works was recently selected for the Swatch x you project and lends its motifs to the famous Swiss watch.
