Eric Magassa (b.1972) is an artist based in Gothenburg. Magassa spent most of his youth moving back and forth between Gothenburg and Paris with his Swedish mother and French father from Senegalese and Malian descent. As a student, Magassa subsequently lived in London and New York to study at Central Saint Martins and The Art Students League of New York. His works stem from experiments with different media ranging from paintings to drawings, sculptures, collages, videos and textiles. Identity, fetish rituals, abstraction and patterns are often subjects in Magassa’s work.
