'MONDES PERDUS'


PAINTING | SCULPTURE | VIDEO | INSTALLATION

Leading name of a new generation of senegalese artists, Soly Cissé (b. 1969, Dakar) presents his first solo show at INFLUX CONTEMPORARY ART, in Lisbon. The show features thirty pieces in various media, from the 2008 to 2010 period, and illustrates the recent trajectory of this multi-talented artist, confessed admirer of Bacon and Basquiat.

Soly Cissé 's 'bestiary' is composed of organic forms, metamorphic creatures and dysfunctional worlds. His art is universal, not getting trapped in 'origin certificates' or geographies. Cissé 's work's aggressiveness reflects the aggressiveness of our time: the violence and the lack of compassion.
