Tangwan Elice, Mwengwi, Cameroon



Tangwan Elice is a self taught pencil portrait artist living in Cameroon. He began practicing pencil art in August 2013. Through persistent practice and desire to improve, he has evolved into the artist represented by his works.

He makes use of a few simple tools to transform a photograph into a wonderful piece of art. Nothing makes him want to draw more than knowing that someone somewhere appreciates his work, and is willing to keep that special part of him in the form of art.



Contact the artist via Keith McFarlane (Portraits Africa) at editor@negativeentropy.net who will provide an introduction. Artist and buyer are free to negotiate on both subject and price. While the artist has provided a guide-price or price indication, the first step in any commission is that artist and buyer agree the price, size, subject and materials of the composition and its delivery date. Portraits Africa will then request the agreed commission fee from the buyer, and on receipt of that fee will advise the artist to start work. The fee will not be released to the artist until the work has been completed and delivered to the buyer. Should a dispute arise between artist and buyer, it is Portraits Africa that will adjudicate. For the service prospectus, Terms & Conditions, see Commissioning a Portrait.
