Through paintings and drawing installations, he addresses issues on authenticity and visibility related to heritage and archeology. In 2011 he founded the Yè art studio and offers art and visual culture workshops at institutions in Benin. He took part in residency programs at the Arthouse Foundation, Lagos (2017), and Rijksakademie, Amsterdam (2015–2016).
