    Axel Angenor Bamouin Sinzé, of his artist name Bamouin Sinzé, was born in 1995 in Aboisso, in the South-Comoé region of Ivory Coast. In 2014, he moved to Abidjan to begin his studies of visual arts at INSAAC, during which he refined his artistic and literary universe. Bamouin Sinzé has developed a plastic technique capable of immersing us in the intimacy of his nocturnal wanderings, facing the fragile balance between mirages and realities.

    Since his childhood, Bamouin Sinzé has transported himself into an inner world, a world of chimeras in which he can gather himself. The plastic gesture allows him to give life to the figures that inhabit him, to give shape to the shadows. If this universe is not tangible, it is not necessarily non-existent. For Bamouin Sinzé, each of us has an intimate and specific knowledge of it, but only some of us have the curiosity or the temerity to assume it and embrace it.

    Bamouin Sinzé, with a candle in his hand, draws lines, circles and curves in the air under his upside down canvas, most of the time at night, like invisible writing. The smoke transcribes these gestures on the canvas by grey and vaporous, fragile marks. The evanescence thus appears to be at the centre of his work. The artist seeks to represent a fragment of immortalized time, to seize the impalpable, to represent what inexorably ends up disappearing.

  • 'Paradis noir, le monde des oubliés ! Paradis nécromantique, des roses endeuillées sur la poitrine des déchus ! Des ailes... 'Paradis noir, le monde des oubliés ! Paradis nécromantique, des roses endeuillées sur la poitrine des déchus ! Des ailes...
    "Paradis noir, le monde des oubliés !
    Paradis nécromantique, des roses endeuillées sur la poitrine des déchus !

    Des ailes incendiées, des pleurs dorés sentant la rouille !
    Paradis noir emprisonné par la fumée céleste !

    Paradis noir, le chant des lucioles retentit dans les entrailles des rossignols !

    Paradis noir, l’Éden des déchus fleuri de la frustration sur le dos du Vieux !

    Paradis noir, les accordéons et orgues harmonisent la noirceur des perdus en pensées vagabondes, dans la tête des sous-hommes ! 

    Paradis noir ! Les crocs endiablés de leurs tristesse repeignent les centaures en jaune !"
