Portrait

Bouvey Enkobo (1985) is part of the generation conflict between the Academy of Fine Arts in Kinshasa and “the new wave” and chooses to pursue his career alone. At 25 today, his business card is rich with several exhibitions in the DRC and abroad.


The innovative approach of Bouvy Enkobo, both in terms of technique, through his work on color, as themes addressed, gives it a very fast recognition.

In his works, the artist wants to account for the elusive and fugitive profiles that coexist in large cities: the time that passes and the human intelligence are thus intertwined. The expansion of the modern world and its evolution take place without regard to individuals, and sometimes even to their detriment. These are drowned in the mass, standardized; there is no longer any possibility of differentiating them.


Bouvy represents the left-behind and the marginalized of society, in the form of stricken and prostrate characters. Within these heterogeneous architectural complexes that are the big cities, Mr. and Mrs. All-the-World are strangers. Human inventions, cranes and construction machines, mark a frantic race towards an uncertain future.
