Footnotes

  • "For Bouabré, his drawings are representation of everything that is revealed or concealed - signs, divine thoughts, dreams, myths, the sciences, traditions - and he views his role as an artist as a redemptive calling. He has stated: 'Now that we are recognized as artists, our duty is to organize into a society, and in such a way to create a framework for discussion and exchange among those who acquire and those who create. From that could arise a felicitous world civilization.'"
