Metal and fabric, stitching on metal structure, welding 

I am a sculptor from the Democratic Republic of Congo currently residing in Belgium. The most important elements in my artistic work are tradition, modernity and transparency. To make contemporary art, I am inspired by African primitive art. The most used materials in my art are sewing threads, knitting yarns, ropes, metals. fabrics… 

Sewing and braiding for the moment takes a considerable place in my artistic work.
