Last week, I had the pleasure of being introduced to Aboubakar Fofana @ Hermon and Hermon. The evening was hosted by Neale Whitaker and was a Q&A regarding Aboubakar's lifework, Indigo dyeing.
It was fascinating and inspirational.
Mali born and based, indigo artist Aboubakar Fofana is on a quest to preserve and restore his native country’s once popular art of indigo and vegetable dyeing. Driven by a passion to maintain his country’s cultural heritage, Fofana travels the globe teaching his craft and showing his pieces of contemporary art created using ancient techniques.
