About the Artist:
Sadio is the quintessential inhabitant of Dakar, Senegal. He incorporates all the fantastical elements of that most modern and yet ancient of cities that sits at the confluence of desert and ocean, of ancient spirituality, Islam and Christianity, of colliding kingdoms, communities and histories and most of all a living city, perhaps due to its very special geography at the western most tip of the African Continent, surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic, that is cosmopolitan, open, curious and forward facing in everything it does.
Sadio’s art portrays all of the above: the collision, the encounter, the grace, the inclusion and resulting fusion into the authentic and innovative - in a way that never erases origin. Sadio is increasingly classed among the emerging contemporary artists from the African continent who defy description because of their innovative and completely avantgarde vitality.
