Saïdou Dicko (1979-)

Artwork by Saïdou Dicko


Through painting, photography, video or installations, Saïdou Dicko transforms the representation of forms giving life to visual phenomena, to physical and psychological events of light, uniting the two extreme values that are at the heart of black and white contrast. He finds pleasure in bringing together the opposites to talk to us about equality, union, maternal love, freedom, humanity.

Dicko was born in Burkina Faso in 1979 and currently lives and works in Paris, France. He has been widely exhibited internationally, with presentations at the Dakar Biennale, Africa Now and the Fondation Blanchere to name a few.
