Ivorian Contemporary Artist Paul Sika

27 years old Paul Sika was born in Abidjan, the capital of Cote d’Ivoire/Ivory Coast, a country located in West Africa. Spending a considerable part of his younger years playing video games and programming calculators, he decides to study Software Engineering in order to also be able to make the electronic entertainments he loves so much. The United Kingdom and more specifically England is the land that welcomed him for his further education after obtaining a baccalaureate from Lycée Blaise Pascal, the French Lycée of Cote d’Ivoire.  In London, Paul falls in love with cinema; a love that leads him to explore his imagination together with photography. Upon graduating from Westminster University with a BSC in Software Engineering, he decides to leave the field of computers when he goes back to his native country. When flabbergasted friends and fellow countrymen would ask why he came back, when he could have stayed there and get a really good career and a nice salary or even enter the respected London College of Communication that wanted him, he answered "It had to be done". Photography is only one step towards his creative work, Paul calls his technique "Photomaking"- One frame film making. The title for the pictures below are titled "Dandelia #3" from the Dandelia series of Lilian's Appeal.
