Artist from Cameroon
The artist Pascale Mathine Tayou was born in Cameroon in 1966 and now works out of Ghent, Belgium. His works combine eggs, which are represented in many cultures as a symbol of perfection, with trees as a reference to nature and a source of inspiration. All of his works have a common denominator: an individual who makes his way through the world.
Duality and versatility
The artwork on the can is characterized by versatility. It is heterogeneous, mobile and falls outside of given patterns. Tayou uses duality as a stylistic device for his works. This started with changing his name to the female version.
Strong roast coffee
The Illy Intenso Espresso consists of 100% Arabica beans. These give it its flavor with notes of cocoa and dried fruit. The degree of roasting is dark. The Illy Intenso can be enjoyed both as a cappuccino and in its purest form as an espresso..
