Mame N'Diaye is an award winning visionary artist and composer of electronic music. Working primarily in pen and ink, converted to digital prints, Mame creates complex visual landscapes, fantasy portraits and intricately detailed abstract drawings incorporating original scripts and symbols that evoke ancient and mystical texts and stories. Mame draws her inspiration from her Senegalese Sufi and Caribbean heritage as well from her travels to West Africa, Morocco and from her exploration of world shamanistic healing traditions. In January 2013, a documentary on her life as an African American woman artist with autism entitled, “I am Mame” by filmmaker Debra Robinson was screened to a standing room only audience at Silver Spring Civic Center.
