Cristiano Mangovo

Item Info

In collaboration with AFRICANA Art Foundation we had the pleasure to visit Cristiano Mangovo’s studio in Lisbon and spend the day with him with the goal of better understanding his journey, his way of working and delving more of into the place where all the magic happens. Works of art are usually seen in a clean, sophisticated setting yet that piece has had a story before that, and that’s the story we wanted to tell.

Cristiano Mangovo, who graduated in painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Kinshasa, is an artist whose work ranges from Impressionist to Surrealist techniques. He focuses on paintings and installations, experimenting with new techniques and different materials. Through his use of various techniques, particularly his surrealist approach, Mangovo has developed a unique style that sets him apart within the contemporary African art scene.
