Press release

The Worst Art Exhibition Ever
Based on Verdi’s AIDA, 3 May 2009 at Hackney Empire Theatre

A solo show of incredibly bad artworks by Thona Samba
Marie Lloyd Bar, Hackney Empire Theatre, 291 Mare Street, E8 1EJ

Supported by the band Love Revue which will be playing live on the opening night Wednesday 29 April

Hackney Empire Theatre’s Marie Lloyd Bar is pleased to announce the first solo show of incredibly bad artworks by French painter Thona Samba on view from 29 April – 12 May 2009. An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, 29 April from 6pm. The public is invited and all are welcome.

Thona Samba is the worst painter, traveller, musician and comedian from Paris.
War – Jealousy – Revenge is the theme for his first exhibition of his works. The theme is based on Verdi’s Aida (3 May 2009 at Hackney Empire Theatre).

Thona speaks:

“My name is Thona Samba. I am a fresh new painter from Paris, now living in London.
I always wanted to do something creative.....
At the age of 16 been in a theatre troupe two years.
Since then I always try to do something in the art.....
My paintings are very bad but colourful. I like colours very much...........
The mouth gonna be the theme for my first solo exhibition. I never show my work before to the public .
Why mouth?
Because the mouth is the centre of many of the fundamental components of human activity. It is consumption, speech, breath, romance; it is communication, interaction, giving pleasure, almost a door to the soul.
And I love to communicate, the romance, interaction between people in a positive way..
And because I am a comedian, for me the venue Marie Lloyd Bar is perfect...
The world need to get to know this fresh painter, comedian and also future singer.
I like to share with people.....


Thona Samba can be described as a Conceptual Art Brut or Outsider painter. His paintings are colourful explosions that express complex philosophical ideas in a crude and naïve style. You either hate or love Samba’s work. The Marie Lloyd Bar is proud to present this young artist to a critical London audience.

Please come along to the opening night on the 29 April from 6pm featuring the band Love Revue. Samba will be present and we will also show a non-edited film about Thona at work by The Monkey in the Box Company.

I would like to make people aware of White House Project in the first place. I would like them to respond to it, feel it and give feedback. And to sell it too...

Hopefully, you'll get some time to look into it. The project is connected to cities and countries, the next one is Spain. The current one was mostly European.

There are many interesting and exciting details to come along with new exhibitions. Enjoy.
