Born in 1985 in Kaffrine, Senegal, Alioune Diagne lives and works between Senegal and France. Former Beaux-Arts student in Dakar, he immediately distinguished himself by founding in 2013 an unique mode of expression : the "figuro-abstro". Composed of a figurative created from an infinite number of tiny unique element, Diagne's work challenges by its complexity and the dynamism of its scenes which depict the daily life of the black community and the African diaspora through the worl. Inspired by the philosophy of calligraphy, the "figuro-abstro" tells, like this mysterious scriptural art, an imaginary writing, an universal language and the intimate story of fragments of the artist's personal life and travels. At the age of 38 he thus lays the groundwork for deep reflection on current issues as the ecology, the place of women in society, the racism and the notion of transmission or heritage.
