Antoine Lema is a sociologist (PhD) at Lund University, Sweden, with an engaging passion for photography and the exploration of visual arts, but particularly primary African Arts. The subject of his thesis was 'The Ethnicity of Civil Wars in Africa' (Lund,1993). For the past 20 years, he has worked as a World Bank expert in Washington DC, travelling extensively in Africa, not forgetting his passions. In 2008, he initiated and together with the art curator organised the Africa Now exhibition at the World Bank in Washington, DC. Showcasing the works of 160 artists in design, poetry, film, sculptures, paintings and photography, the event was considered the largest representation ever of African artists at one single exhibition. Allo Kafi Gida is the first of his African Art narratives to be published.
