Ange-Martial Méné, born in 1977 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast and graduated in 2002 from the National School of Fine Arts of Abidjan (ENBA) and the Center for Pedagogical Training for Arts and Culture (CFPAC). As a visual artist, he draws his inspiration from cave painting. He is reappropriating this old writing and draw upon the past to better understand the present. His work is the combination of an ancient civilization enriched by modernism. "The origin was innocence and purity," this vision guides Méné and takes him to work with minimalist forms and sober colors. The artist feels the need to express himself with different materials and using different supports and pigments: earth, kaolin, sand, bark juice, etc.. Style and content can’t be dissociated and materials are merged.
