Clay Apenouvon participated in painting, graphic arts and screen-printing workshops in Togo before moving to Paris where he continued his initiation with artists Claude Viallat and Mounir Fatmi. After exploring cardboard as a material, he developed the concept ‘Plastic Attack’ to raise public awareness of the harmfulness of plastic.
