ABOUDIA | Noutchy in New York City

Sale Overview

Christie’s is pleased to present Noutchy in New York City, an online sale of all new paintings and works on paper by the artist ABOUDIA. Created at his studio in Abidjan over the course of the last year in isolation, these works incorporate memories of the artist’s native Cote d’Ivoire and draw inspiration from the pulse of city streets. The paintings and drawings alike incorporate found materials from the artist’s milieu in a painterly homage to nouchi, the youthful slang of cosmopolitan French-Africa and also the name of the artist’s dog and closest companion in lockdown (affectionately misspelled, “Noutchy”). Heavily layered with the vitality, spontaneity and emotive bravado of graffiti, ABOUDIA’s art draws on both the joys and hardships of his native country and city life to conjure phantasmagorical visions in paint, oil stick and collage. The sale will be accompanied by an intimate exhibition from March 4 to 8 at Christie’s, Rockefeller Center galleries.
