Aboudia is a contemporary painter from the African Country of Ivory Coast. Aboudia paints in an expressionistic style.
The artist gained worldwide recognition when the fighting in Abidjan, Ivory Coast came close to his studio. The artist captured the emotion of the moment on canvas.
The artist’s government name is Abdoulaye Diarrasouba. He was born in the Ivory Coast in the year 1983. Aboudia attended college at the School of the Applied Arts located in Bingerville, Ivory Coast.

Price range information: Sorry none available.
Aboudia creates works based on his emotions. I enjoy Aboudia’s bold designs that often include text. His work does a great job at capturing the energy of the moment. A few other artists who excelled at this were Munch, the aforementioned Basquiat, and the Cuban artist Pablo Carreño.
