D Leopold Segueda

Burkina Faso

Dagnang-ne-wende Leopold Segueda, better known as D Leopold Segueda, was born on 11 August 1979 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

Leopold from a young age, in primary school, was already drawing and drawing very well. However, it was only at the age of 18 that he became really interested in painting. From that time on, curious to know what results this path would lead him to, he began to paint and dedicate himself to it.

Leopold learnt to paint with Zare Faiçal, an artist from Burkina Faso.

Along the way, he refined his technique in various courses and workshops organised in Ouagadougou.

Leopold is self-taught and believes that technique is due to working at home, in workshops, every day, and with the masters. All this, makes the artists grow and be recognised today.

Leopold's first exhibition was at the Cairo International Biennale in Egypt in 2000.

Currently Leopold has numerous participations in group and solo exhibitions, national and international, and numerous national and international private collections.
