Soly Cissé

Opening on Thursday, May 21st from 6 PM to 9 PM

Soly Cissé is a phenomenon of contemporary art, considered as one of the rising stars of his generation over the last few years. He was born in 1969 in Dakar, Senegal, where he lives and works.

“The painter has a blatant need to provoke disharmony and painful tension: his paintings are not exactly easy. Balance is only established via a paradoxical situation: the more we penetrate his microcosm peopled with monsters, the more we are aware of the need for these great confrontations between the intense blues and strident, bitter yellows.  It is only by slowly and patiently learning the codes and methods of his artistic language that harmony is slowly re-established and a fragile balance accommodated without ever obliterating the virulent and combative nature of his gestures and thoughts.  “
