Profile Information

Self-taught Senegalese Fine Artist

Growing up in a community active in farming, fishing, and raising cattle, taught me many things. Such a nurturing and cyclical environment was the “school of life” for me. I have been involved in art since my childhood.

 

I never underwent formal training in art as I grew up in a family with very limited finances. I always had difficulty getting standard art supplies. Nevertheless I satisfied my artistic desires by drawing sketches and giving them to my friends. During that time in my life, I was completely unacquainted with “art” as an academic term. But over time, with patience, perseverance, and simply doing what I always loved to do, I felt encouraged and adopted a personal philosophy that has made me very independent in the styles in which I express myself.

 

In my art, it is me first and the medium after. Freedom is the foundation of the manner in which I express myself. I like to create, but I also want to see my personality and life experience in what I create. I like to work in black and white as I often relate visually to natural and carved ebony wood and that has influenced me a lot.

 

To create my art, I prefer to work in a non-traditional manner and move away from the strictly academic methods because my school is everyday life.
