Joycenath TSHAMALA NTUMBA, (Kinshasa, 1993. Lives and works in Kinshasa, DRC)
Shadow of comfort. Mixed media, collage and acrylic on canvas. 123 x 88.5 cm. Signed and dated 2023 lower right, droit de suite non-applicable. Born in 1993, Joycenath Tshamala Ntumba was initiated to painting at the Institute of Fine Arts in Kinshasa. In his art he has a rather interesting approach with collective and individual memory and uses different mediums. He imposes his artistic personality, which consists in giving life to unusual materials and supports, such as Compact-Discs (CDs). He cuts up cassettes and assembles them to create his work of illustrations of anonymous characters. As a painter and collagist, the work of Tshamala, is first and foremost innovative in conveying the ethical values of rebirth of lost value. A prevalent element in his work is rust, which is a priori a symbol of lapse. It is obtained through the manipulation of metals that he mixes with water, glue and other substances. Tshamala is an artist who skillfully plays with the connection between the real and the imaginary. Each work holds a story linked to the experience of the human being in general and of his own realities. His numerous artistic creations show that where life has been distorted, hope can always be reborn.
