Aliou Diack

Aliou Diack was born in 1987 in Sidi Bougou, in the Mbour region of Dakar, Senegal.

Already curious as a child, Aliou goes to discover nature, the world of fauna and flora. He observes the proportions, the colors, the textures and records all it in sketchbooks, which serve him as a training ground. To continue his studies, he left his village at 10 to settle in the center of Dakar. As he could not find there the same nature and freedom, he compensates by drawing "everywhere" around him, a way to recreate his universe.

He starts art studies at the National School of Arts in Dakar, where he got used to manipulate multiple mediums and tools that will allow him to increase his artistic field and master other techniques than drawing. Major of his promotion, Aliou distinguished from others by the visual power of his works, sober, but from which emanate a primitive and instinctive natural universe.

Aliou Diack lives and works in Dakar, Senegal.
