Yahya B.

Hi, I’m Yahya. I’m 25 years old and I come from Gambia. I’ve been living in Bolzano for 18 months now. My parents and my three younger sisters still live in Gambia. I have two elder brothers, one of them lives in Germany and the other in Finland. I studied Art at High School for 3 years in my country. Here, a friend of mine from Merano, who is very open and helps me a lot, put me in contact with Stefan Fabi, a local artist in Marlengo. Having the opportunity to work with him is a very interesting experience. He’s a really nice guy!

Mi chiamo Yahya, ho 25 anni, vengo dal Gambia e vivo a Bolzano da 18 mesi. I miei genitori e tre sorelle minori vivono ancora in Gambia. I miei fratelli maggiori vivono in Europa, uno in Germania e l’altro in Finlandia. Nel mio Paese ho frequentato un liceo artistico. Una mia amica a Merano, che è molto aperta e mi aiuta parecchio, mi ha fatto conoscere l’artista Stefan Fabi di Marlengo, il quale mi ha dato l’opportunità di lavorare con lui. Questa esperienza è molto interessante. Lui è un tipo molto in gamba!

Eine Freundin in Meran, die sehr offen und hilfsbereit ist, machte mich mit dem Künstler Stefan Fabi in Marling bekannt, und er gab mir die Möglichkeit, mit ihm zu arbeiten. Das ist sehr interessant, er ist ein netter Typ!
