In Untitled, Pierre-Camille Bodo Pambu takes his inspiration from the realities of his city and its inhabitants as well as from his numerous trips around Europe and the USA. He creates half human – half animal creatures, coming from oneiric and fantasy worlds to offer a dreamlike vision of a better world.
