Patju is the stage name of Patrick Nganga from Eindhoven. This 27-year-old artist with African roots has the ambition to become a fashion designer, despite his troubled life, or maybe because of it.
Being homeless and all the stress that comes with it are tough on anyone. Art challenges and helps him visualise his emotions. For Patju, making art works as inspiration for his designs and ideas in fashion.
This artwork showing colourful African masks symbolises his roots in colourful Africa. This sock is the very first piece of clothing by Patju, a ollectors item in other words!
