Diakhaté, Adama

Adama Diakhaté is born in 1958 in Waoundé, a village at the Senegal River in east Senegal. At the age of 18 he emigrated to France. In 1994 he has married a Belgian woman. From that time he has been living in Antwerp, Belgium. He has been working as an industrial cleaner.

His former village life gives him the inspiration. The traditional stories and folk tales. As a painter he is autodidact. He combines a flat style of human figure modelling with a painterly landscape reproduction.
