Adama Coulibaly

Adama Coulibaly, born in 1995 in Katiola city, Cote D’Ivoire, now lives and works in New York City.

“The path out of darkness is light, and mine is lit with color. I find comfort in vibrancy, and I crave the control found in geometric order. The contrast within my art is representative of a split in my life; difficult childhood years are the base layer of support for my more recent, positive experiences. The positive experiences only manifested after I found an outlet through creativity. My art is an autobiography. I hope it tells my story, but more importantly, that it brings a sense of calm to the viewer, like the process of creating it does for me.”
