Clément-Marie Biazin

"A long fight for the emergence and the recognition of a Contemporary African Art"

It is Bangui (Republic of Central Africa-RCA), towards the end of 1966, that Robert SÈVE first has the chance to meet the african Painter and Story-teller Clément-Marie BIAZIN, who tells him about his eighteen years of "educative travels" in the heart of Africa and his ambition to paint and write "The Great Book of African History".


BIAZIN at the same time admits to him his total lack of financial means to realise such a vast project.


Robert SÈVE immediately offers him these means : BIAZIN can at last realise his "Great Work of Art", and this is just the beginning of a deep friendship between SÈVE and BIAZIN, which only comes to an end with the death of the latter in January 1981.
