Siriki Ky is a sculptor. Since 1985, he has been present on the international scene, in Italy, Germany, Belgium, France and Canada, but also in Côte d’Ivoire, Mali and Senegal, where he has participated in numerous sculpture symposiums. In 1988, he was the initiator of the International Symposium on Granite Sculpture in Laongo, Burkina Faso.
From the granite of Burkina Faso to the snow in Europe, through stone, wood, bronze, iron, Ky interprets the world, touching at the same time on the revealed and hidden highlights of existence: the real and the unreal, tradition and modernity, the sacred and the profane, the Self and the Other. Part of the first generation of Burkinabe visual artists to receive academic training, Ky studied at the Beaux-Arts d’Abidjan and perfected his skills in Pietrasanta, Italy where he became a master in the lost wax process. He then settled in Burkina Faso, where he made a name for himself by winning the Prix de la Fondation Afrique en Créations (1996) for his project Sculpture sur Granit de Laongo, a veritable open air museum. His work is held in numerous collections including Musée national du Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou; Musée National du Mali, Bamako; Fondation Blachère Apt, France; Collection Luc Dumoulin Brussels, Belgium; Collection Jacques Salomé; Collection J.M. Aulas; Collection Von Brochowsky – Gorde; Collection Manservisi – Union Européenne, Brussels; Collection M. Nancy, London and Collection Edem Kodjo, Lomé.
