Abou Sidibé

Burkina Faso Born in: 1977
Born in 1977 in Abidjan where he studied at the Beaux Arts in Bingerville, Abou came to Ouagadougou to draw other sources of inspiration. Welcomed by the Olorun Foundation, he quickly abandoned an art too academic to plunge happily into a world more inventive, more daring. He has made several exhibitions abroad, including one in Colombia where he also gave sculpture classes.
Even if his sources of inspiration remain deeply rooted in his culture, the assemblage of materials he organizes around his woods testifies to a real modernity. Cleves, inner tubes, nails and other tin cans come to convey all the contrasts of an Africa constantly oscillating between tradition and modernity. An anxious figure, Abou attacks the wood with a real energy demonstrating by this all his determination to want to impose itself in an art that his continent has been able to impose on all for a long time.
