The Malian artist Abdoulaye Konate creates unique textile compositions and his newest exhibition features a variety of them.

The artwork is made up of several pieces of textiles that combine to form different abstract designs, gradient colors. These formations make up different images that include birds and insects. The name of the exhibition is 'Symphony in Color' and pays a direct homage to the artist's love for music. The textile compositions use thread that "alludes to the traditional capes worn by Senufo musicians from areas of southwestern Mali and the North of the Ivory Coast."

These compositions are made through an unusual process that comes together to create diverse and beautiful work that is inspired by several different types of art.
