Amadou Sanda

Amadou Sanda is a persevering artist who does not shrink from the difficulties imposed by the profession. Sanda came to painting by necessity. One day he came across a Fulani woman in a market who had a lot of tattoos on her face. Very impressed by these body marks, he decided as a Fulani man to explore the universe of these tangible symbols that fascinate and wonder. The artistic works of Sanda are generally based on the Fulani culture. Sanda spent six years, from 1999 to 2005, working on the body marks of the Fulani. From 2005 to 2011, he redirected his research on the Fulani herdsmen.
