Domin & Zézê legend


An drawing philosophical tale
by frédéric Bruly Bouabré



"Legends are immortal songs of immortal souls. Their origins are more than distant. The legends owe their survival to their beauty, their simplicity, their clarity, the light they bring to the history of this world, the history of mankind."
(Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, extract)


The myth meets everyday life and takes all its meaning to the great sages. A pure breath.


Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, born in 1921 in Ivory Coast, is known more by his graphic work exposed in many museums and galleries throughout the world that by his literary and philosophical work, however immense. His creation, both written and pictorial, remains inseparable, as illustrated by the 'Legend of Domin & Zézê'.
