Naïve paintings of Nianing, Senegal by Francoise Gaujour

French photographer Francoise Gaujour’s collection of storefronts from the Senegalese city of Nianing, showcases the colourful and original artwork of local (perhaps) self-taught artists.
Like the Ghanaian movie posters or the Togolese barbershop signs, these signature stylized drawings have now become specific to African pop culture. The references to current fashion trends and influences from abroad give them a charming appeal.
