Seencelor la Bombe is a self-taught graffiti artist based in Cotonou and in activity for more than 20 years.
He has been painting full-time for over fifteen years, participating in multiple exhibitions, projects and festivals in Benin, Togo, the West African sub-region and in Europe. He is, among other things, a founding member of the ASSART collective, founders of the Effet Graff international street art festival.
Far from confining itself to the shackles of Street art, Seencelor explores another branch of plastic writing, that of painting. It is in this vein that he likes to underline: "Beginning with calligraphy through Street Art in Lomé, and being a graffiti artist at heart, painting was for me the second material integrated into my production". His paintings, which oscillate between impressionism and expressionism, two western avant-garde movements, depict, denounce, and capture many times the emotional peregrinations of his contemporaries. Colors, and flat areas of paint, the artist gives birth to emotion.
