Mabel 62 is a very odd shop located in Château Rouge. It has its own ambiance. This is an esotericism shop, where they sell all kinds of religious & spirituals objects.—
They can even sell you spells or voodoo items. I like this place because I feel this is very unique to have this kind of boutique in Paris. I usually go shopping for my incense at this place. Whenever I go inside the shop, my sense of smell is under attack, holy water, incenses… it’s like someone is taking my soul.
About the Author
Enfant Précoce is a painter, born in Cameroon in 1989. He discovered art with his uncle Malam Essoua, a sculptor, whose life as a free artist inspired him. And, he dances. This first love for movement led Francis Essoua alias Enfant Précoce to paint, with which he fell in love in 2013. His canvases mix bodies, sometimes stretched, sometimes relaxed, hands apart, legs projected between African faces and masks. A thousand and one colors bloom. It is the color of Enfant’s tales. Enfant Précoce tells us stories that touch on the universal. The world takes the form of a myth animated by its characters like apparitions captured in color and disproportion. The storyteller's voice is in our eyes. Everywhere they look. He questions, he evaluates. Something of a presence, the gesture, inhabits his creations, apparently spontaneous, but which, nevertheless, obey a constraint. And while Enfant Précoce shares, Enfant Précoce goes on a quest. Triangles nose, clover nose; fleshy or scarlet mouths; large hands and open hands; flower garden… he explores. His paintings are an invitation to decipher signs, rebuses, symbols; an invitation to play on cultural variations. In the end, obviously, the emotion.
