Homages to Senegalese musical figures on large scale canvases where he reproduces the album covers provide a hyper-realistic rendering of ephemeral material culture that resonates with nostalgia. The same applies to the reworking of the film stills taken from romantic French and Hollywood movies, where a focus on the use of mass media is peppered with an acute sense of displacement and melancholia.
