Painter, installationist, sculptor, stylist, Cheikh Bamba Loum known as Cheikha is a multi-faceted artist. Very present in the Medina scene, he can also be as furtive when he is in a state of cogitation. Through his brand Sigil (straighten up) he has combined mastery of the fibrous texture and sculptural form, especially with new uses of fabrics that have become urban, such as jeans. As a sculptor, he transfigures forms. As a colorist he finds improbable harmonies… His work is known in Senegal and in Europe just like the philosophy and the bayfaal forms that animate it.
