Ousmane Gueye started to sculpt stone at the age of 6. In 1956, during the World Festival of Black Arts, the president and poet, Léopold Sédar Senghor, fascinated by the young boy's works, decided to give him a scholarship to carry on his education

A limitless artist

The development of his art made him travel from Paris to New York, from England to Switzerland or Japan. Ousmane Gueye walked through the entire world to find out new materials he needed but also to find an audience and ideal places to work in. He often says that the artist has no country, as the anthropologist and ethnologist, Claude Lévi-Strauss says:

« The sense of gratitude and respect which each single member of a given culture can and should feel towards all others can only be based on the conviction that the other cultures differ from his own in countless ways. ».
