Born in Paris, Massogona Sylla has always been captivated by the world of art. As a child, she goes through the corridors of museums discovering a universe of colors and poetry that she soon takes to own.
At the age of four, she moved to Ivory Coast. Returning to Paris at the age of 18, Massogona was initially following photography classes. She quickly turns to collage, which becomes the indispensable source for the full expression of her talent: the poetry of words in the form of poetic and offbeat slogans, the marriage of colors and shapes giving rise to incredible patchworks, Scenarios made of role-playing games where the characters populating her imagination meet. Her work, punctuated with references to Warhol, Picasso, Lachapelle, Goude and Basquiat, reminds the aesthetics of fashion.
Massogona Sylla challenges the viewer about the place of women in society and their representation in the media. Her atypical career gives strength, accuracy and singularity to her work.
