Contemporary painter born in 1982 in Adjamé in the Ivory Coast, Casimir Balibié Bationo [CasziB.], is from the Lélé ethnic group located in the northwest of Burkina Faso.
He currently lives and works in Meknes, Morocco.
After several courses in painting, live model drawing, photography, light and animated film, he trained in contemporary painting for 3 years and learned decisive techniques for the practice of his art.
His inspiration and his imagination are nourished by the various human and artistic encounters that allow him his "nomadic" life between the African continent with its multicultural facets and his forays into Europe. His painting has a universal dimension constantly in motion as is the world. Through colorful and rhythmic atmospheres, faces made of shadows and contrasts, CasziB. transcribes his gaze that he poses on this Africa in action, strong in its values, as well as on Western culture; it expresses the meeting and crossing of these cultures.
