African Art Beats presents “The Bright Side”, an exhibit featuring paintings by Soul (Souleymane Konaté, from Côte d’Ivoire), and mixed media artworks on wood and other supports by Diamas (Serge Diakota Mabilama, from the Republic of the Congo), and Doff (Appolinaire Guidimbaye, from Chad). Although these three artists have different sources of inspiration and distinctive techniques and media, the three of them share an optimistic outlook and believe in our capacity to trigger positive social, political and environmental change.

It is the first time that the gallery presents Diamas and Doff.
