Adrien Abdoukhader Sene dit BXS
Recycled oil barrels or railway track...
His approach is in line with the very African principle of recycling and provokes reflections on contemporary society.
He's a giant. A force of nature. A broad, frank smile under a hat from which long braids escape.
Serene, warm, fraternal, Adrien Abdoubakher Sene says that when he left school, he ran to his father's workshop to tinker with small pieces of metal.
He founded, with the support of the mayor of Rufisque, in Senegal, an educational workshop for young teenagers. The challenge? introduce them to mechanical construction while developing in them a sense of beauty.
Miracles are accomplished with the means at hand.
"It's amazing what you can do with a hammer and a welder".
The raw material is local: scrap rail or barrel of oil - what BXS humorously calls "petrovestiges"
