The bright-coloured paintings of Vincent Michea operate as souvenirs of Dakar’s past glories, visual documents of the city’s undying glamour. The capital of Senegal, Dakar, is seen behind the reticular lens of Michea’s illustrations as on a TV set. Captured with postcard style graphic sensibility, his images are built upon photographs of city views, ostensibly focusing on the jewels of its modernist architecture and the overwhelming elegance of the inhabitants of the pearl of West Africa.
