YAO YAGOR Ivorian, b. 1981

Yao Yagor, who graduated from the Beaux-Arts School of Abidjan in 2008, is a contemporary artist from the Abidjan scene whose style is at the crossroads of several influences: raw art, symbolic art, singular art and realism. He depicts the difficult human conditions using metal plates, receipts, bills, newsprint, sacks of rice, cement and many other everyday objects that have already been used. The artist takes a critical look at today’s narcissistic society, saturated with consumer products. His Zombie Generation series, which he has been pursuing for several years is perpetually evolving to reflect the artist’s growth. His characters still suffer from the social fracture; they endure it seeking salvation from gratuitous violence or artificial paradises while digging the remains of the rich in search for treasures for their survival.
