Saïdou Dicko

Previous Next

Born in 1979, Dicko, one of 11 children, was initially a herdsman in his village near Deou. He invented his own alphabet while in the bush before starting school in town. It was here that he discovered his first artistic ‘shadows’. He knew the shadows well, having tamed them endlessly while watching his herds and perfected his first form of expression: shadow plays. At fifteen he took some painting classes and became a painter of shadows and ten years later he is still painting. He also works in video which he will present at the Addis Foto Fest.
