The Biography of Tendjibaye Alladoumngar
Any newly-arrived tourist in
Chad will not go very long without having discovered the artwork of
Tendjibaye Alladoumngar, be it his sculptures or his paintings. He
is known for his artwork of daily life in Chad: the village dances, the
preparation of a meal, nomads on a journey... His paintings
encompass the realities of Chadian life, in the north as well as in the
south. Symbolism enters into each of his portraits, with a realism
which is easily interpreted. An example of this can be found in
Director's Conference Room in the Bank of Central African States (BÉAC)
building in downtown N'Djaména. There you will see a seven metre
long tableau of a large dugout canoe transporting six persons. In
the dugout canoe is a barrel of petrol, some lumber, two heads of
cattle, a pile of cocoa fruit, and a bale of cotton, each product
representing the principal wealth of each member state of BÉAC.
