Kalifa Kourouma

14x11 graphite on bristol.

One day, we met with all the village elders to discuss current issues of life and work in the village. It was a bright, blue-skied morning but the temperature had not yet risen, and there was a chill to the morning air. The men wore heavy jackets and huddled close, even though the temperature was about 60º F (balmy for me, coming from the New England winters!). This man’s face, humility, and kindness I will never forget. His name is Kalifa Kourouma.


Drawing on Culture

An Artist’s West Africa Travelogue

In Drawing on Culture, Kobrenski shares his artwork, stories, and insights about culture and worldviews with the keen eye of an anthropologist so that we might, in turn, see our own cultural worldview with new eyes.

More than thirty new artworks from his time in Guinea are compiled here alongside his own field notes and essays. His portrait drawings inspire conversations about diversity, tradition, and why ancient ways of knowing are now more relevant than ever.

“Dave Kobrenski is a gifted artist and musician, and a better anthropologist than many of the PhDs I know. Here is a fine text that depicts people as they are, illustrates their essence, and demonstrates the importance of appreciating, without appropriating, their lives and ways of being.”
