Steve Bandoma

Born in 1981 in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo
Lives and works in Kinshasa



Steve Bandoma graduated the School of Fine Art of Kinshasa in 2004. Period within wish he was part of the "Librisme Synergie" collective. In 2005 he moved to Cape Town, South Africa, where his career observed a significant increase.
He uses several medium and techniques such as performance, photography, painting but also collage. He produces his collages with images from magazine that he reuses giving them a modern meaning and, as he says, "A new life". The mix of techniques brings a dynamic into his artworks; an aesthetic inspired by the bustle of Kinshasa and reflects a new African society in constant evolution.
