Gallinaceous Bestiary lost in the middle of disparate objects belonging as much to the Ivorian daily recognizable by these bottles of beer, cubes Maggi, pairs of slouchy sneakers, as well as European bourgeois interiors symbolized by silhouettes of Louis XV armchairs: these are the elements of the decor camped by Gopal Dagogno.

Hybrid still lifes to which the artist gives life by its precise line and the use of a palette of vibrant colors, his paintings and drawings constitute the narrative in images of a Barthesian mythology of everyday life enriched by the double culture of its creator.
In terms of pictorial heritage, one thinks of Basquiat for the energy of the trait, Warhol for the African version of the American Way of Life (and consume), or Watts and Cissé on the side of the continent's contemporaries.
We could still mention the paintings of Korogho, a region of northern Ivoiry Coast, famous for its scenes of everyday life painted without artifice ....
Yet Gopal's style belongs only to him.
Prolonging a state of sleep that he considers particularly fruitful, his works, immortal traces of a kind of automatic drawing, arise from his brush and his pencil without preconceived idea, in an artistic practice lived as a catharsis through which it is above all the hand that speaks.
