‘what about you?’ DAY 4: SAMBOU DIOUF

How important is (your) history to YOU?
Diouf pays homages to Senegalese masters, to his history and tradition. “I don’t know who they are, they are hidden behind a mask. We need the key to reclaim our African art history”. I am tired of the European painters like we learned at school. As he is paying homage, he humbly makes his contribution to the Senegalese art history.

Sambou Diouf (1975) lives and works in Dakar and has taken part in workshops and residency programs both locally and internationally. He has exhibited internationally including in Senegal, USA, Belgium and France. 

These works are part of an online pop-up exhibition of contemporary African art ‘What About You?’
