Born in 1969 - France
Better known under the internationally recognized pseudonym of Kongo, Cyril Phan is a self-taught painter who has established himself in less than 20 years as a leading figure of the French, European and international artistic scene.
He initially gained fame as a graffiti artist, thanks to his mastery of the graffiti techniques and to his role in the legendary M.A.C. collective. He is one of the major personalities of the French graffiti scene of the last 20 years. Kongo has also managed to make his practice evolve and attain artistic maturity. Today he has a rich body of work and a variety of clients, all the while maintaining his unique artistic identity and keeping his tradition of mural and fresco painting alive.
In addition, Kongo has been involved in numerous cultural and artistic happenings, both in France and abroad. Lately, he has toured China, Africa etc. He co-founded the first international graffiti festival in France, "Kosmopolite".
