About Éric Androa
Eric Androa Mindre Kolo was born in 1983 in Aru (Congo DRC) and was educated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kinshasa and the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg (Haute École des Arts du Rhin). Recognized as one of the most important artists of his generation in Central Africa, he has co-curated the Kinshsasa Chroniques exhibition and the Africas: Concrete Utopias program in France, among others.
In his work he moves between performances, installations, collages and drawings with a keen eye for and involvement with current problems and situations confronting the population of the African continent, especially in their relation to Mikili ('the world' in the Lingala). He describes himself as a devoted 'Mikilist', meaning 'one who has seen the world, one who has travelled'. Eric Androa is founder of the Bingo Cosmos collective and member of the CRIC collective and lives and works in Strasbourg.
