Surrounding Energy


Meet the Artist:

Kader Boly grew up in a nomadic herding family in the northern part of Burkina Faso, where he developed a deep connection to animal life and the seasonal rains that animated the arid plains. At age 12, he began recording his impressions of his surroundings in drawings and later in his teens moved to the nation’s capital to join his brother in creating and selling clothing for the tourist market. Having acquired sufficient business acumen to forge a career as an artist, Boly left for France at 22. In 2004, he made his first visit to the U.S., where he eventually settled in Santa Fe, N.M.
