Previous artists

Bouvy Enkobo (1981) | DR Congo

Bouvy Enkobo studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kinshasa, but left to pursue his career alone as part of “the new wave” generation conflict. Besides painting, he also experiments with collage, photography and video.

Fenneke Hordijk (1955) | The Netherlands

Fenneke Hordijk is a versatile artist, who organically tells the material the story on drawings of size. This is done by giving the paper substrate its own structure by creasing or otherwise adding materials with texture, in which it makes layers of her drawing materials within that structure.

Jeffrey Burger (1971) | The Netherlands

Jeffrey Burger creates semi-abstract portraits and figures in layers of painted iron mesh, 3D compositions in clean-cut horizontal and vertical lines, floating straight on the wall or another surface in a distant, almost photographic perfection.

Laftmonk (1973) | France

Laftmonk is a painter and textile artist. She uses weaving as a metaphor for social cohesion to intersect lives and to help create a stronger and responsible social fabric integrating the space of the artwork with the space of the viewer, with works that demand participation or interaction.

Cristiano Mangovo (1982) | Angola

Cristiano Mangovo, visual artist, has completed the Academy of Fine Arts in Kinshasa (DR Congo) with additional training in urban scenography and performance. In his paintings and collages, Mangovo has developed various styles and symbols over the years, but always with a surrealistic twist.

Mumpasi Meso (1984) | Angola / Brazil

Mumpasi Meso is son of the Angolan painter and mosaic artist Za Meso Mumpasi. Mumpasi is a master in orchestrating colors and forms using different techniques and has his own signature in it.
