Description
I am a reverse glass artist from Senegal, West Africa. My medium is oil paint on glass. Reverse glass painting is a traditional art form in West Africa. Through my art, I try to give people an idea of what life is like in Senegal. I paint traditional scenes like transport buses, koranic school and storytellers. I also paint abstract scenes and portraits.
Background
I came to the United States in 2001 to study as a Post Graduate Apprentice at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, PA. I also taught classes in reverse glass painting. I was trained in reverse glass painting at African Cultural Center of Thies in Senegal. My workshop was located in the Artists Village in Thies where I sold my work and taught classes. I also taught at the Ecole Francais in Thies. My work has been exhibited in museums, shows and galleries in the United States, France, Martinique and Senegal. I am currently a volunteer at the Fox Hills Elementary School where I assist with art classes.
