Alpha was born in 1979 in Mauritania, and at the age of 26, fled the country for a journey that lasted 12 years. It was on this exiled path that he began to create works of art as a draftsman and painter. While imprisoned in Greece, following the death of his mother, he started writing a collection of short stories and poems. He is the Artist of the Jungle of Calais, where in 2012, he stood out for his work “Blue House” and his school “art and crafts”. He exhibited in Romainville, the ‘Quincaillerie du temps présent’ in Brussels, the South Bank, the Immigration Museum in London, and at the Braderie de l’Art in Roubaix.
