Moulaye Niang

Moulaye Niang arrived in Venice about 10 years ago from Senegal.

First he started as a musician and painter but soon after he met glass and was utterly fascinated by it. The next consequence soon followed: Moulaye decided to work in order to pay for the lessons at the Scuola Abate Zanetti .

Being well determine, his efforts have payed off and eventually he became master glassmaker.

Together with the south tyrolean Emanuela Chimenton, designer and jewellerymaker, Moulaye opened his first and successful workshop "Muranero" in Venice.

Deeply inspired by nature, Moulaye tries to combine in his artworks colours and themes of African culture with European elements.

He’s so talented that today he is the first non-Venetian master glassmaker to be recognized as such by the Muranese and Venetian glassmasters themselves. In this video you can listen Moulaye and the great master Pino Signoretto tell this incredible adventure.

    Hello Moulaye- I was just staring at one ☝️ of your paintings 🖼️ I bought from either you or one of your representatives when I decided on a 3 week adventure to The Gambia, after a very extremely painful experience – I can’t quite remember where I found your gallery of artwork, but I was with my dear older sister – & I just said- ‘I want to take this home 🏡 with me’ we agreed, & I had to have it shipped over to the UK 🇬🇧 separately! Anyway I wanted to express how the painting changes for me over the years & I see different things .
    Basically Thankyou ❤️ Much love Sonia
