A few words about your artistic journey

I am an artist trained at the Institute of Fine Arts evolving in Lubumbashi.
I did several graffiti in various cultural places in the city. My latest achievement is an exhibition at the Waza Art Center in January 2020.

How long have you been an artist ?

At the end of my studies, I risked myself in another field but I could not flourish there. I decided to take up the art that I have practiced for 15 years ; I feel right in my element.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

In these times of health crisis, the opportunities for artists are scarce. This grant will be an opportunity for me to continue my passion while raising awareness in the population of my city.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

Raise awareness and dialogue with the population in order to understand their perception of the situation and what the post-covid will be.
