After high school, Issa started working as a political cartoonist, illustrator and reporter in a weekly satirical newspaper, Le Messager Popoli. His opposition to the political regime in Cameroon led him to several trips to jail in 1994. In 1996 he escaped from his country to seek asylum in France. His artwork has inspired the human spirit of thousands of people in dozens of countries. Issa Nyaphaga is convinced that the power of art can save lives.
