Freedom! sculpture

Freedom! sculpture tours UK to mark 200th anniversary of abolition of slave trade.

Andre Eugene started out as a builder in an atmosphere of artistic endeavour and craftsmanship, which inspired him to learn traditional wood sculpting before he turned towards contemporary art. Most of his work is figurative influenced by his sense of irony, African roots and beliefs such as vodou.
