SDG 1: No Poverty

Artist Name: Agathe Emmanuel Country: Mauritius

Emmanuel Agathe is a final-year BA(Hons) Visual Arts student at the University of Mauritius (MGI), originally from Rodrigues. As an emerging artist, his work focuses on themes like poverty, limited opportunities, the strength of women, and nostalgia. Agathe creates hyperrealistic portraits and post-impressionist landscapes inspired by masters like Claude Monet and Pissarro. He aims to make audiences pause and feel the deep emotions he conveys.

Coming from a poor family and facing hardships after his father’s death, Agathe’s personal experiences drive his art, hoping to inspire others through his story of resilience and creativity.
