Aliou Badou Diack, born in Sidi Bougou, Mbour, SN in 1987, studied at the Ecole Nationale des Arts (ENA) in Dakar. His visual universe is inhabited by hybrid beings in a process of constant metamorphosis. Nature, being a co-producer in his artistic practice, assumes the role of the unpredictable for dynamic transformations in his works. With references to oral traditions his works comment on human and non-human relations.
