Kura Shomali

Born in 1979 - Democratic Republic of Congo


biography under completion

Kura Shomali graduated from Kinshasa Academy of Fine Arts and thanks to a bursary studied at the Strasbourg School of Art and Design (ESAD), from which he graduated in 2008. Having produced videos and created art installations and puppets; and made use of salvage materials, Shomali finally flourished and cemented his style through drawing. He works on drawing paper and uses poster paint, ink, felt tips and even charcoal, with collages sometimes being used to supplement drawing. His works are highly original and immediately recognisable. They often evoke the buzz and disorder of Kinshasa. Several of Kura Shomali’s artworks were on display at the Beauté Congo - Congo Kitoko exhibition at the Cartier Foundation (Paris, July 2015-January 2016).
