This chapter focuses on the experience and work of Mamadou Somé Coulibaly, a Malian painter who trained in the Soviet Union in the 1960s and later became a leading actor in Malian cultural policy. It sets out the conditions under which he studied in Moscow, presenting his paintings and diaries as evidence of his perceptive and creative responses to the barrage of new and complex experiences he and other African students confronted in the Soviet Union, such as xenophobic encounters with Soviet people and racial tensions created by relationships between African men and Soviet women. These mark him out as an exemplar of a particular kind of cosmopolitanism.
