PRESENTATION OF THE ARTIST
Mouhamadou Sarr dit Pape Dudu, born in Dakar in 1981, graduated from the National School of Fine Arts in Dakar in 2002.
From 2007, the artist exhibited at the National Gallery and the following year at the Off of the Dakar Biennale. In Ouakam, he regularly gives plastic arts lessons to young and old in his courtyard-workshop.
Although he first drew his inspiration from music, he often painted women. According to his intuitions, he launches into the abstract as well as the figurative. His mixed technique combines acrylic and sometimes collage of card stock, wood or cords.
In 2018, Pape Dudu participated in the exhibition “African women of yesteryear, inspiration today” in duet with the street artist Tampidaro as part of the Off of the Dakar Biennale 2018 at the Kaay Séenù gallery with Jëndalma Art & Design. He is part of the collective of artists “Les Fous de Dakar” launched in 2019 during its “Street Expo”.
