Inoussa Simpore, known as Inno, is a contemporary painter from Burkina Faso. Forced to cut short his schooling to earn a living, he set up as a shoe-shine boy in Ouagadougou. There he met a signwriter from whom he learned to paint signs and pictures. Overcoming enormous material difficulties, Inno became a full-time painter, depicting scenes from everyday life in Burkina Faso. He is one of a number of contemporary artists emerging onto the international art scene, such as Alassane Drabo.
