Arrived in France in 1994, with a view to training in cartoon animation. In the preparatory class, he discovers the multiple potentialities of sculpture and changes his way. His passion for cartoons and cinema will still nourish his work, whether at the realistic level or in his sometimes narrative-sized installations. In 1995, he joined the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and successively took part in the workshops Bruno Lebel and Richard Deacon. Graduated with the congratulations of the jury in 2001, he participated in the exhibition Félicités in 2002. He has exhibited at the Emmanuel Perrotin Gallery, the Villette, the Dakar Biennial and the Visual Art Festival of 'Abidjan.
His work is crossed by questions of identity, exile and violence. Privileging realistic forms, he questions human relationships, reveals the painful interiorities without ever falling into pathos, with humor, force and sometimes derision. His work is a call to dialogue, to sharing, beyond the color of the skin, the borders or the trades of hatred.
