Cote d'Ivoire

(Born in 1983, Abidjan, Ivory Coast. Lives and works in Abidjan, and New York, USA.)

Aboudia’s work crosses cultures and worlds, as he draws inspiration from street culture, Vodou, and from the characters from his neighbourhood in Abidjan. He gives space to process the trauma that still haunts urban landscapes following Ivory Coast's civil war in 2011. Childlike figures are hemmed-in a graffiti-like style, created out of oil sticks, acrylics, and collage. His recent work explores the hardships of modern life, and the social inequalities experienced in Abidjan, depicted in a balance between pathos and torment.

Aboudia’s work belongs to numerous international collections globally, including the Saatchi Gallery in London. He’s been exhibited at the 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair in London and Marrakech, while also displaying at the Royal Academy Summer Show in 2017.
