Graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, he is a multidisciplinary artist, at the same time painter, sculptor and designer.

Admiring the still lives of Joachim Kagnédjatou Silué, it is difficult not to see a tribute to life, to senses. Half way between painting and sculpture, his works are composed of bitumen, wire or recycled wood whose materiality is palpable.

The artist gives importance to used elements that have absorbed a form of suffering, a story. The memory of his past animates him. Not without a certain elegance, the reduced palette composed of whites, blacks and beiges emphasizes the narrative presence of these raw materials of whom Joachim Kagnédjatou Silué tries to sublimate the last moments of life, as to grant them an ultimate function.

For several years, he taught visual arts at the Archeology Museum in Modena. In 2017 he participated in the exhibition The Juices of Time, held at the Pavillion of Ivory Coast during the 57th Venice Biennale.
