    About The Work

    “I myself am an artist from popular culture. So I think that it's great that my work is accessible to as many through the medium of skateboards”. Chéri Samba – 2017 For his first collaboration w/ The Skateroom, Chéri Samba decided to support the Berlin-based NGO Skateistan and more especially Skateistan teaching activites in South Africa. “My art addresses everybody, all the social classes. The fact that my collaboration with you is going to help funding the NGO Skateistan in its action in South Africa with children, is consistent with my work” Chéri Samba – 2017 Born in 1956 in Kinto M'Vuila, DRC Lives and works in Kinshasa, DRC In 1972, he settled in Kinshasa, where he earned his living as an advertising signs painter while making comic strips for his magazine Bilenge info. Few years later, he transposed its Comic strips on canvas, thus inaugurating the bubble painting. It sets out the facts of society, manners, sexuality, illness, social inequalities, corruption etc. He quickly reached a great popularity, all Kinshasa knows him. In 1980, he introduced himself as a narrator in his painting, for people to know his reflexion but also his face. Always colorful and often glittery as a way to play down these dramatic subjects.
