The exhibition «A city by the sea» shows the new artworks of Ndoye Douts : acrylic on canvas, drawings on creased kraft paper and ink on paper.
Born in 1973 at Sangalkam, Senegal, Ndoye Douts is graduated from national school of arts in Dakar. He was a recipient of the class prize in 1999.
He recreates in his work the chaotic universe of African cities. Medina, the neighborhood where he lives and works, is his main source of inspiration. He has a taste for detail and his brush has an allusive force that recalls the style of expressionists. Human silhouettes are deliberately suggested by blurred, neglected contours.
Exhibited in Beaubourg in 2005 during the Africa Remix exhibition, Douts is also a videographer and was awarded for an animated film; “Medina train-train”.
