Ibou Ndoye

Born in the West African capital city of Dakar in Senegal, glass-painting artist Ibrahima Ndoye has combined modernism and traditionalism to create a rich, iconic style. Ibou says he "socialized with art and cohabited with colors" from a very young age. Ibou entered and rejuvenated the world of glass painting breaking and layering glass to create new textures and effects. The incorporation of various other materials including wood, bone, copper wire, broken bottles, and animal skin appear in Ibou’s work as well. Some pieces combine glass with plastics and other materials common to our modern environment including stapled scraps of soda cans and detergent boxes. As an art instructor and public speaker currently residing in Jersey City, NJ, Ibou works to promote and expand his artistic vision through exhibition, education and cultural exchange.
