Ngagne Maleine Séne had his first art exhibition at the Hann Bel Air town hall in 2001. Since then, the artist has refined his style which waltzes between several influences where his fierce will to show his Africanity shines through: warm colours are very present. Yellow, red and sometimes orange take precedence over others such as the colder blue. There is also the omnipresence of masks, as if the artist were in pursuit of a now-defunct Africa that it is time to bring back to life. At first glance, Ngagne Maleine Séne's work is reminiscent of abstraction, then of cubism, albeit synthetic according to some critics, and a little surrealism, which recalls certain paintings by Picasso in a certain form of resonance.
A visual artist and director today, Ngagne Maleine Séne is an autodidact with a passion for art and culture. He has a family atmosphere. The son of Senegalese filmmaker Moussa Sene Absa, he trained under him while attending evening classes at the Ecole des Beaux-arts from 1994 to 1997.
He participated as an assistant set designer in films such as Tableau Ferraille (1996), Jef Jël (1998), Madame Brouette (2002). He was the head set designer for the series Goorgolu broadcast on Radiodiffusion Télévision du Sénégal (2004 and 2010).
In order to detach himself from the aura of his father and to assert himself as an artist, he lives in the Ile de France and exhibits between France, Germany and the USA. His last exhibition was a group show in Vauréal on La migration des couleurs organised by the association for the promotion of contemporary African art.
