Frédéric Bruly Bouabré is an Ivorian poet and artist, he also invented a specific African writing to save the culture of the Bete people from oblivion. He thus reproduces all of the syllables on small cardboard cards. Using this writing style, he transcribed tales, poems and texts from the Bete culture.

His research has been published in 1958 by Théodore Monod. Frédéric Bruly Bouabré is one of the greatest artists of the African continent. His artworks are rare and highly sought after, they are exhibited in major collections and museums: Centre Pompidou in Paris and Mamco in Geneva...
