Based in the UK, Fulgence was born in the Ivory Coast. He studied fine arts and graduated from the National Arts Institute of Abidjan, Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts of Paris and from the University of Paris.
From 1983 to 2000, Fulgence taught Fine Arts in various institutions in France, here in the UK, and in the Ivory Coast, including a lectureship at the National Arts institute of Abidjan INSAAC, where he largely contributed to the development of a number of art teachers and artists. As an artist, he took part in numerous group, as well as solo exhibitions here in the UK and internationally. Inspired by the Symbolism of the Hebrew letters, the African traditions, and environmental issues, Fulgence constantly seeks balance in his work, which is characterised by expressive and geometrical lines, contrast of tones with a very limited palette. He also promotes Peace through visual arts as the founder and curator of the extremely popular biennial, UNESCO’s Art For Peace Exhibition in Paris.
