Abstract:

"Viyé Diba, a Senegalese artist living in Dakar, says himself that he is not an African artist, but a modern artist living in Africa. His work has evolved from small format painting to 3 dimensional works to increasingly large metaphorical installations. His artistic discourse goes beyond a mere aesthetic expression. Whether it delves into the mysteries of communication, or raises environmental, social or political questions through the use of raw and recycled materials, Viyé's work explores the vital role of art and cannot be ignored"--Container.
