Biography

Born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. Lives and works in Abidjan.
Aboudia’s vast paintings convey a strident visual universe made of disparate fragments. In 2011 the young artist from the Ivory Coast was forced to take refuge in an underground studio due to the sudden escalation of violence that followed electoral chaos in the city of Abidjan. The images born out of this experience are recorded in the work entitled Daloa 29, where a multitude of characters display menacing weapons.
