Back to virtual reality time travel in Dakar
I Was there, that’s the first wall in Dakar in the Medina ,This wall has been titled Babylon!… Because it contains all the race and the colour all together in the same place, a bit an obvious name for a patchwork of heads confused and messed up together also they all have shade (sun glasses) (Lunette) “why ?”loads of people asked„, “I don’t know” I replied ! Maybe because the sun is so strong ?! I thought that was a big success when I saw people play in front of my wall.
Thanks to Guillaume Bassinet for the last photo, and thanks to: Yattal_Art, Mauro and Theo Petroni, Modu Boye, Bilall, Mbaye Camara, Alajee, Mussa, Lizette, Ugo and Vladimir, Sofia, Rakin, DimilBroblem and all the kids around me the all time …

DAKAR _Senegal_West Africa.
First day, first wall in Dakar, Yattal-ART association has been helping me to find walls around the Medina area, I had a good choice and probably I choose the most wreck one, where a car repair place is just there on the pavement in front of the wall. The colour I chose for this wall are very brite and I don’t know how long they are gonna stay like that, doen’t matter… the picture above is my posse >left to right Modu Boye, Alaje, Mc Rakin and the mighty Mc Dimilbrolem (10000matter )…

*Real life break/update
Wile virtually I’m still in West Africa painting through villages, jungles and mangroves, in the real life I’m preparing this exiting festival in south London that is going to open the 11th May in Dulwich,
be ready, be around!
Batakunku village in Gambia before moving up north to Senegal
One of my last day in the Gambia, I have been guested by these two incredible people Abdulaye and Margeret in Batakunku village up nord west in direction Banjul. We spend a day painting their shop/gallery, Abdulaye is an artist man, screen printer and he makes sculpture out of bones and caws horn.
One of those man that can make anything with his hand and I miss him.
The shop is in front of this big mosque and for a few time a day you can hear the Islam’s pray loud!
I will miss that too! …
Moving to Senegal I will miss and miss and miss all off this incredible people which I hope I will see again one day, the important is that the connection is done, we are in each other thought and we will never never forget the time together .
This, to me, is traveling
Sanyang, fisherman’s town Gambia.
