Exposition solo de Cyril “KONGO” Phan “De la rue jaillit la couleur” du 4 mars au 30 avril vernissage le 3 mars 2011 Galerie Wallworks 4 rue Martel 75010 Paris Artistik Performance by KONGO (Tribute to Toni Morrison) Artist : KONGO
Better known under the internationally recognized pseudonym of Kongo, Cyril Phan is a self-taught painter who has established himself in just a dozen or so years as a leading figure of the French, European and world scene.
True, he initially gained famed as primarily a graffiti artist, since his mastery of the speciality and his role in the legendary M.A.C. group has made of him one of the major creators of the French graffiti scene for the past 20 years. But he has also managed to move his technique towards a mature artistry. Thus, he has without doubt been able today to develop multiple skills, for a variety of clients, all the while maintaining his unique artistic identity and in keeping with his tradition of mural and fresco painting.
Kongo, Cyril Phan [son] Dr. Phan Văn Song [father]
In addition, Kongo has been involved in numerous cultural and artistic happenings, both at home and abroad. Lately, he has toured China, Africa etc… It should be noted he co-founded the international graffiti festival in France, “Kosmopolite” and the traveling “Eatingfrogstour” in mainland China and Hong Kong.
He remains personally productive, with exhibits and shows around the world.
At this time, new projects are about to go public. Never at a loss for inspiration, this talented and varied artist has not yet tested the limits of his possibilities.
