The home of... Artist, Louis Masai Michel...

The London Home and Studio of Artist Louis Masai Michel










This converted warehouse apartment is the  London Home and studio of artist Louis Masai Michel.


LOUIS MASAI MICHEL grew up with Afrocentric artefacts, voodoo dolls and living what many other children read about in storybooks. His father was born in a mud hut in Cameroon, in northwest Africa, and was the only white child in the village.

Louis’ grandfather, a Dutch geologist, travelled across the world with his work and his family followed him. This meant, for Louis’ father, being raised in the African and American continents. This heritage has forged within Louis a strong connection to Africa and its many animals.

Louis’ parents met at art school and eventually became restaurateurs. Louis picked up both art and cooking skills from his parents and they are serving him well......
