Soly Cissé







I absolutely love these electrifying but still vaguely haunting paintings by Senegalese artist Soly Cissé. His work was featured at the Milan furniture fair last month as part of Stephen Burks' "M'Afrique" installation for Italian furniture manufacturer, Moroso. Read about it on iconeye. Also part of the installation was the work of Nubian artist Fathi Hassan (whom I'll be featuring shortly) and the photographs of architect David Adjaye.

Thanks for visiting!

Come back again soon...

Whoops! I'm such a hypocrite. This one of my favorite blogs bar none! Oversight corrected. Place secured, locked and loaded. You totally rock!
