Africa Unmasked Features Senegalese Artist Ndoye Dout's

On the heels of the beautiful show that she mounted at the Cloître des Billettes in March, Aude Minart has mounted a new African art exposition called Africa Unmasked on the Left Bank. The venue is the Mailletz Gallery across from the Saint Severin church and the featured artist is Mohamadou Ndoye Dout's.

I briefly encounted Dout's last Tuesday at the vernissage for the show. Though he lives in Pierrefitte, a northern suburb of Paris, his work focuses on the urban landscape of Dakar, Senegal.

All the works displayed are mixed media. Dout's created them in 2012.
