Entered the Fine Arts for drawing, he will make the meeting of his life: painting.
Inspired by the Ndawrabine, the traditional dance of the Leboues women inspired by the movements of fishermen, he denounces the over-exploitation of the seas and more generally of our ecosystems.
He shows his own reality of the visible with the artistic movement figuro-abstro: a very colorful “green” world source of hope.
