Jean-Charles SANKARE

Mali Born in: 1961

Born in 1961 in Bamako, Mali, Jean-Charles Sankaré lives in Paris. He worked as a tiler in the south of France until his arrival in Paris in 1996. He became a decorator for the playwright and man of the theater Armand Gatti. The following year, he made his first paintings. For nearly ten years he sold his works in the street until the Artes gallery in Barbizon decided to devote an exhibition to him in 2016. The following year, he took part in the Arts singuliers exhibition in Moret-sur-Loing .
It is based “on a technique which mixes with envy materials dedicated to the plastic arts and professional materials that the painter uses for his benefit. Acrylic and lime flower merge into a new material that Jean-Charles mixes, spreads, scratches, hollows out, creating furrows and reliefs. He cultivates his taste for thickness and develops his own style: a raw, figurative painting, nourished by the idea of cracks and tears (…) A labyrinthine form sometimes comes to be inscribed and to tell the different paths that 'a man can take, his loneliness in the face of the twists and turns of the social world,' writes art critic Frédérique Oudin in the Portrait that Artension magazine devoted to him in 2017.
