Brief Synopsis: Dodji grew up in Togo where he first fell in love with art. From childhood, he drew or painted on any surface he could find, his talent illuminating even the humblest corners. He uses everyday experiences, people, places, and things as a basis for his art. Dodji adopted a unique yet flexible approach to art by tapping into the moment. While in the United States, his passion for oil painting persisted. He honed his craft with unwavering dedication, winning prestigious awards and acclaim. A graduate of Syracuse University, he now navigates computer technology professionally. Despite his demanding career, he carves out time to paint, infusing his art with the rich tapestry of his life’s journey, bridging continents and cultures with every brushstroke. “I never force my art; I let it come to me. I treat every artwork as a project of its own, as a structure, and build it with the best technique I feel appropriate for it at that moment, the best way I can.”
