Catalogue Note

La sublime humanité aux couleurs de l’arc-en-ciel perfectly demonstrates a theme that interlaces much of Bouabré’s work —the artist’s desire to unite mankind and to liberate the world from the idea that we do not share any sort of universality. Here we see several figures, each a different colour, hoisting up a world. By creating this image, Bouabré seeks to unite and uplift mankind by highlighting that despite our differences we all share a common origin and purpose, much like a rainbow.
