Contemporary African Art Collection by Jean Pigozzi
|Chéri Samba, currently exhibited at Fondation Louis Vuitton, tells us his story - We Are OurChoices|
Born in a rural province of Congo, Chéri Samba is today one of the most recognized contemporary African artists. Self-taught and full of imagination, he draws in the evening in secret and sells his sketches to his classmates. At the age of 16 he left for Kinshasa and started as a commercial painter. Strengthened by his success and endowed with a malicious spirit, he embarks on his own account; the starting point of his career.
