“We always paint war, peace. I have chosen to paint women, because they ennoble art.”
Sylvestre Bruly Bouabré was born in Daloa in 1973 and currently lives and works in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
A plastic artist, he is the son and assistant of internationally renowned painter Bruly Bouabré.

In 2010 he exhibited in his home city at the BICICI Amie des Arts, at the Fondation Charles Donwahi and at the Italian embassy in Abidjan. In 2013 he participated in the “Souvenir d’Afrique” exhibition at Palazzo Lucarini in Trevi (Italy), in “Shift/Rue du Commerce” at the La MaMa in Spoleto (Italy) and showed at the Koffi-Yao gallery in Abidjan.
