Ibou Ndoye: Forms of Faces (New Drawing Series Paperback)
Ibou Ndoye creates beautifully primal, vibrant books of images that spring from his West African roots and reflect all the bustling energy of his experience of the NYC area. This publication is a reproduction of a unique book on cardboard made by Ibou Ndoye in 2011. Created with stencil cut-outs, acrylic and latex paints and drawing materials, it is one of several from that year's output that employs masks and identity as a common theme.
