About Sanou Oumar

Sanou Oumar (b. 1986, Burkina Faso) is a New York-based artist who harnesses drawing as a means of meditation. Using pencil, pen, and marker, Oumar creates intricate graphic abstractions that nod to the traditions of Transcendentalism in an unfurling use of space, color, and light. Oumar studied English Literature at the University of Ouagadougou and has lived and worked in the Bronx and Harlem since 2015.
