IBRAHIMA SECK

Ibrahima Seck is a Serere from Sénégal, West Africa. He is multi-lingual, speaking his native tongue, French, and English. The artist, Ousseynou Sarr, introduced Ibrahima Seck to painting in 1970. Ousseynou Sarr is a professor of artistic education at Dakar Arts Institute, and has been living and painting in Paris, France, for more than ten years mentoring Seck.

Ten years ago, Seck went back to his home to devote himself to his art. His inspiration and his edeas are reflections of his Serere tribe's life, the echo and inward rituals of his ethnic resonance of song and the beauty of West Africa. Seck is most famous for his painting "Les Ndiouli En Circonsis".
