Le Monde des Flamboyants Presents a New Exhibition: ´Mavinga ­‒ Jubilé d´or`

26.06.2013, Kinshasa, DRC – TMB is pleased to invite you to a fascinating new exhibition “Mavinga – Jubilée d’or” (Mavinga – Golden Jubilee) to be held from Thursday 27 June to Friday 26 July, at “Le Monde des Flamboyants”.

Le Monde des Flamboyant is the permanent cultural centre created by TMB at its regional headquarters in Kinshasa.

For more than fifty years the renowned artist Mavinga Vital has been delighting us with his works. Vital graduated from the ‘Académie des Beaux-Arts’ (Academy of Fine Arts) in 1961, becoming a teacher and then an Associate Master at the same institution. He is a member of the ‘Association Congolaise des Artistes Plasticiens’ (ACAP – Congolese Association of Visual Artists).

Mavinga has been deeply involved in training new generations of painters, whilst at the same time continuing his rich career as an artist.

For Bamba Ndombasi, also a member of ACAP and an Associate Master at the Academy of Fine Arts, “his paintings are marked by a high dignity of style and reveal an intense inner life and a collected depth. No landscape, few still-lifes, but the man in all his dimensions”.

The exhibition is free and open to all members of the public, from Monday to Friday, from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm and on Saturday, from 8.00 am to 12.00 pm.
