Guided by his talented uncle Malam, the Cameroonian sculptor, and friend Leo Walks Enfant Précoce, Francis, has built a name for himself. He knows the art and fashion world, how much we love a story - and how to tell them. Francis created a fun video and photography series Exposez-moi (Exhibit me) ahead of his exhibition in 2018 at La Montgolfière club in Paris, in which he took to the streets. The artist stood outside of esteemed museums posing in front of his works until he was finally recognised for an exhibition - a beautiful, albeit not completely true story. METAL's Features Editor, Bella Spratley, invited him to exhibit at the club before the Exposez-moi series was taken after meeting at a fashion party - of outsiders breaking in - in Paris. A beautiful and engaging dreamer, Enfant Précoce knows how to play the game. Now he has another special project his new Printemps Cachemire collection - that seems to preempt the release of some fashion garments designed by Francis himself - fingers crossed!
"PS. Never compare Enfant Précoce to Basquiat - he's bored of it and it's not true." - Bella
