A few words about your artistic journey

Born January 22, 1979 in Dakar, I am a self-taught artist who attended the studio of Daouda Ndiaye, renowned art teacher and visual artist. Since my first exhibition in the early 2000s, I have participated in various group exhibitions in Senegal and France.

How long have you been an artist ?

Interested in drawing from elementary school, I started my artistic career since 1996.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

All cultural events have been canceled. The Dark’art 2020 Biennial, which has been prepared for several months and which is an important source of income, has been postponed. I am affected economically by this situation and this creative residency will also allow me to progress in my creativity by experimenting with other tools and supports.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

After the residency, I plan to continue experimenting with other media, advance my digital presence and, if possible, prepare an international exhibition currently suspended because of the Covid-19.
