Born in 1981 in Burkina Faso, Hyacinthe Ouattara is a mainly self-taught visual artist. He currently lives and works in France. After several workshop experiences, with a training in live model drawing, Hyacinthe Ouattara first imagined the human body in a dreamlike, ghostly and childlike way before entering his entrails and concentrating his work on tissues. Matter, texture and colours are very important in his pictorial work.
His sculptures and drawings are both a reflection on memory and on an organic aspect. It is the ambivalence between appearance and disappearance, representation and intimacy, identity in the broadest sense. These question the notion of links. His drawings, are spontaneous, gestural and question the human.
He has participated in exhibitions in Paris, Berlin, Dakar, Dubai, Ouagadougou, Accra, Luxembourg, the AKAA (Paris) Captown Art Fair, Dubai Art Fair, and the Cairo Biennale.; His works are notably in 2 major private collections in New York. This artwork is part of the "Cartographie Humaine" series.
