Yopougon, Adjamé, Liberté: Armand Boua

1 June - 14 September 2019 ABIDJAN

Galerie Cécile Fakhoury is delighted to present Yopougon, Adjamé, Liberté, Armand Boua’s second personal exhibition.

Born in 1978 in Côte d’Ivoire, the Ivorian artist studied at École des Beaux-Arts in Abidjan and at Centre Technique des Arts appliqués in Bingerville, before choosing painting as the medium to develop his artistic practice.

In the exhibition Yopougon, Adjamé, Liberté, Armand Boua invokes the neighbourhoods of Abidjan that inspire his body of work which consist of scenes of everyday life, both fleeting and persistent, singular and emblematic of a district, a city, a country and more broadly of a shared history.

Successive to Brobrosseurs, his first solo show presented in Dakar in 2018, the new series on cardboards and canvases, appears as the fragmented depiction of the story of a youth struggling with a confused and restless, yet fascinating modernity.
