Born and raised in Senegal, Caroline Gueye pursued her higher education in France, the US and China. She holds degrees in astrophysics, atmospheric physics and Chinese, and is currently completing a PhD in art and science. She has been immersed in the world of art from her earliest years, particularly under the influence of her grandfather Paul Ahyi, creator of the Togolese national flag. In 2016, Gueye gained a taste for volumes in her art when working at the studio of Chinese artist, Qin Chong (亲冲). Since then, she has taken part in over thirty collective, solo and residential exhibitions across four continents. At the Dakar Biennale 2022, she won the prize for Best West African Artist (CEDEAO Prize).
