@soimadouibrahim
Soimadou Ibrahim explores and re-examines family memories by representing cherished moments of his life. Growing up
in Comoros until 10 years old influenced his perspective on socio-economics, the strength of community and the complexities of race.

Throughout his adolescent life Ibrahim lived in a small town in Brittany so it is not only his personal experiences but also those
of the African diaspora that provide him with a narrative to share and explore how to navigate the surrounding environment.

His artworks are adapted from archival photographs, pictures taken by the artist himself, memories, and imagination. They each portray
the importance of relationships, of life itself and the beauty of nature, illustrated by straight lines, bold gestural strokes and bright colours
inspired by his studies in graphic design and art. They also reaffirm the persistence and timelessness of memories, encouraging each
of us to preserve our own.
