Ousmane Bâ was born and raised in Strasbourg, France by the German border. Bâ was inspired to become an artist while managing startups in Europe, developing analysis capabilities and an understanding of human psychology and design.
Taking inspiration from Japanese arts in particular, Bâ moved to Japan in 2017 to develop his practice. Oscillating between painting and digital drawing, the artist’s lyrical images have been shown in a variety of Japanese galleries such as FUKAGAWA GARAGE and Trunk Hotel. Bâ holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from L’Institut Supérieur des Arts Appliqués. Ousmane Bâ will be presented by Galerie Atiss Dakar at 1-54 New York 2023!
