I must say that this post has the largest collection of ‘blue’ on this blog. Malian artist, Aboubakar Fofana, does that to you. Aboubakar is mostly well known as a textile designer, although he’s both a calligrapher, and of course, an artist.

His name is practically now associated with blue textiles. He works on textiles and dyes them to perfection using traditional African dyeing techniques. You may not realize his local methods just by looking at his work because his creations are so modern. He dyes his fibres using natural indigo and vegetable dyes to create every shade of blue known to man! See some of his work below:
