Zoom on... Chéri Samba

Chéri Samba on Kelen, African art promotion

Chéri Samba was born in 1956 in the Democratic Republic of Congo. A true spokesperson for the popular Congolese painting, he creates paintings which are at the same time funny and provoking and which translate, through their precision and political boldness, the vision of a contemporary Africa without complexes, disruptive and restless.

He puts his marks by introducing in his canvas texts in French and Lingala.
