Thona Samba is a 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).
“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 i was in a theatre troupe for two years.
Since then I've always tried to do something in the art.....
My paintings are very colourful. I like colours very much...........
The mouth is going to be the theme for my first solo exhibition. I never showed my work to the public before .
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 do come along to the opening night on the 29 April from 6pm – 9pm. Samba will be present.
