Cheri Samba

Cheri Samba was born in Kinto M’Vuila in the Deomcratic Republic of Congo. With a background in sign painting and comic strips, Samba’s vibrant work uses techniques from both of them to portray Congolese society in a playful, yet revealing way. He was invited in 2007 to be part of the 52nd Venice Biennale, while his works are included in the MOMA, and the Centre Pompidou collections.
