Momar Seck is a Senegalese artist who describes his creations as plural units.

His paintings and sculptures come from the assembly of various materials which serve as a metaphor for the diversity in the world.He creates artworks made from a palette of colors enhanced with incrustations including pieces of cloth and other fragments that have their own history. The variety of textures and colors make each creation a symbol of both union and fragile interdependence: a diversity that hangs by a thread. Each work appears as “a singular diversity”.

“My creation is born of my cultural substratum and feeds on incessant crossings with other cultures. “
