Omar Victor Diop
Omar Victor Diop’s goal is to capture the diversity of contemporary Africa’s many societies and ways of life. After his first public show, at the Rencontres de Bamako in 2011, he launched the series Le Studio des vanités, for which he designed costumes, sets, every element of the final image. In Diaspora (2014) he produced a series of self-portraits doubling as portraits of legendary African figures. A classicist in the noblest sense of the term, Omar Victor Diop nevertheless captures the vibrations of pop and modernity.
