Christian BADIBANGA, aka “Ba”. (Kinshasa 1987. Lives and works in Kinshasa, DRC)
"Saly". Mixed media, acrylic on canvas, inlaid buttons. 88 x 86 cm. 2022. Christian BADIBANGA, also known as "Ba" graduated from Fine Arts School of Kinshasa He was then resident in his uncle's workshop, Freddy Tsimba, known on the international art scene and famous for his sculptures made from casings, cartridges, and machete houses Ba created a contemporary abstract aesthetic art outside the academic conventional figure painting. By lack of money, he uses spilled coffee, glue, and black oil paint on his canvases but mostly, he learns to sew recycled buttons collected by chance on local markets Ba shows a Bantu symbolism and sometimes a universal expression through his anthropoid shapes and figures, sewing his buttons in spirals, giving material, volume, and color to his paintings. His unfinished lines represent infinity, the ups-and-downs in our lives but mostly in his. Ba is a talented believer filled with hopes of always seeking personal reconstruction and growth through his art.
