Rodrigue Dakouri is an artist born in Côte-d’-Ivoire, raised in France, who currently resides in the UK. Rodrigue studied BA in Graphic Design and Illustration at the University of East London. During this time, he joined an art collective composed of artists from different countries. They held multiple exhibitions in London from 2008 to 2010.
Rodrigue’s main artistic inspiration is his love for his native continent which he expresses using different mediums such as gouache, acrylic and pencil. He is building a body of work, a presence that will be recognised in the industry as well-crafted and thought-provoking. Rodrigue’s illustrations have been featured in Folktales from Kilifi, the first book published by the Akili Trust.
Rodrigue’s art is one of storytelling – and he has a story to tell but are we ready to listen?
