Serge Diakota is an Installation Artist from the Democratic Republic of Congo and has over 8 years’ experience as a visual artist with skills ranging from sculpting, painting and photography. He has exhibited in Belgium, South Africa and had various shows in his native Congo. Serge Diakota lives and works in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. His multimedia art incorporates elements of painting, drawing, sculpture and photography with materials salvaged from everyday life such as plates, plastic tables and bottle caps. Serge’s interest in working with “trash” aims to give these discarded objects a second life by re-imagining them into something different and better than their original form. In his Serge’s work, pieces of plastic become intricate fabric-like material and broken plates become canvases. Serge has been mentored by Vitshois Mwilambwe Bondo of Kin ArtStudio, and his involvement in workshops and exchange sessions at the space has played a role in the development of his practice.
