Moustapha Baidi Oumarou was born in 1997 in Maroua, in the far north of Cameroon.
Encouraged by those around him, he turned to painting and presented his first works as an autodidact. In 2013, at the age of 17, he won the 3rd plastic arts prize at the Yawalta Maroua festival. This distinction will be decisive for him because, the following year, he will join the plastic arts club of the University of Maroua. From there, his destiny is already traced.
Moustapha Baidi Oumarou scrutinizes his entourage but takes a visionary look at the world, that of a conscious and humanist painter. It represents the human flower, the human conscience and represents a youth standing, more alive, more open and more human.
This humanism is found in his paintings and drawings as an approach tending to express what the words of the forgotten and the most vulnerable cannot say. Moustapha Baidi Oumarou is engaged in art to testify and campaign for a fairer, more open world. His painting is in his image, positive, optimistic.
