"I try so hard"....
The Designer Cheikh Diallo
Cheikh Diallo is a designer from Mali who lives for the most part in France.
He was as of last year the President of the Association that regroups African interior designers,to that effect he was in DKR last year for the Art Biennale (which must have been trully interesting)....
Anywhoo he stresses the need of education for a designer, in his opinion making 1 or 2 pieces isn't enuff for someone 2 call himself a designer.
He's not necessarly a fan of the term "african designer" because he feels that in some ways it puts the artist in a box...he's proud of his origins and uses its influence greatly in his work...
He wishes interior design was taken more seriously in academically in Africa ....
Anywhoo enjoy couple pictures of his projects:
Djaaa les Maliens sont wraiment dans le chaud:)
