For Frédéric Bruly Bouabre the artist, designing is a delight and his raison d’etre. It is a medium of communication and knowledge. Embracing a diversity of themes related to daily life (the news, advertisements, politics and philosophy), the works of Frédéric Bruly Bouabre also provide a glimpse into the Krou tradition (stories, legends and proverbs) and reflect the Aboriginal heritage that he brings to life. The artist is not isolated but seizes every opportunity to interpret his universe in his own style. Everything he finds is a source of inspiration. The things he picks up from the ground, in garbage cans and elsewhere are all food for his imagination.
