Aliou Diack was born in 1987 in Sidi Bougou in the department of Mbour, 80 km south of Dakar. He fell in love with Mother Nature at a young age and spent most of his time exploring it. At ten years old, he moved to Dakar, in order to continue his studies, where he felt disoriented.
To satisfy his longing for the verdant flora and free wildlife from his village, Aliou started drawing everywhere, trying to reproduce the environment that he loved. He got enrolled at the National School of Arts and perfected his art, combining his talent with the techniques he learned. With a style of his own, he graduated with flying colors and started to exhibit at the Galerie ATISS.
