Hamed OUATTARA

Biography

Hamed OUATTARABorn in 1971 in Ouagadougou, Hamed Ouattara first studied accountancy, then fashion before establishing himself as a self taught painter. After training at the Olorun Foundation, he took a course as part of “Ouag’Art '96” and trained in design at “The National Higher School of Industrial Design” in Paris in 2003. He has taken part in several collective and individual exhibitions in Ouagadougou and held exhibitions abroad in Brussels, Strasbourg and Turin.

In 2002 he won the “Creative Artist” competition prize at the SIAO in Ouagadougou and in 2005 the “Order of Merit of Art, Literature and Communication of Burkina Faso”.

From then on things speeded up for the artist with exhibitions in 2006 at ”Art Basel Miami", at “Galerie Arte” in Dakar, at “Kaloa Gallery” in Bilbao, at  "Le Sud” gallery in Switzerland and at the “Cultural Panafrican Festival” in Algiers.

Since 2011, Hamed Ouattara dedicates more time in design of furnitures, created with recycled metal of oil barrils and frames made up with metal welding. He exhibited at Out of Africa Gallery in Spain, at the Guild of Cape Town in South Africa, in the USA and at fairs like "Maison & Objet" and AKAA in Paris.

Currently Hamed has his own workshop-gallery in the heart of Ouagadougou and organizes workshops for young welders. 

Whether in his paintings or furnitures, the Hamed Ouattara style and touch can be felt. He is rigorous, organized, clear, precise and efficient. Reflected in his rounded style are his numerous trips abroad, his time spent with the “ENSCI”, and his extensive knowledge of design programs.

In 2014, Hamed Ouattara obtained the African Design Award and in 2017 he was elected Cultural Personality of the Year in Burkina Faso. .
