"I take the trunks as they are. I leave them in their writing, without straightening them. What is in nature is not straight." - Jean Servais Somian
Born in 1971 in Ivory Coast, Jean Servais Somian is a designer, cabinetmaker and sculptor. He excels in the art of transforming wood, his favorite material. He lives to turn the western stereotypes of Ivory Coast into visual celebrations and creates by mixing shapes and functions with color and culture.
