Amadou Sanogo graduated from Bamako’s esteemed Institut National des Arts in 2003. Drawing on his Malian upbringing, Sanogo delves into the tender and nuanced matters of global politics, journalism and the justice system. He paints on unstretched, repurposed cloth found at his local market, paying homage to his cultural roots and transposing them into both medium and subject matter. Sanogo is a mainstay at the 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair in London and Paris’ FIAC Officiel with Galerie Magnin-A. His most recent exhibitions include: Kristin Hellegjerde, “Fables” London 2016 and Biennal de Dak’art, “Promenda à Bamako”, Senegal 2016.
