About the Artist:
Ibrahima Dieye was born in the suburbs of Dakar and studied painting at the École Nationale des Arts, where his research focused on the theme of flooding. Dieye first exhibited in the Dak’Art Biennale OFF in 2014 and 2016 before being invited to participatein shows at the Galerie Nationale (Dakar), Galerie Polysémie (Marseille), and the AKAA Art & Design Fair (Paris) in 2017 & 2018. Dieye’s work has a uniquely recognizable style that features accumulation of materials in his drawing-paintings. Influenced by societal issues around him, Dieye frequently uses hybrid creatures as metaphoric characters—recalling the enchanting qualities and didactic concerns of a fable—as he addresses themes of tension, urban life, and chaos.

Co-sponsored by Kent State School of Art Painting and Drawing.
