Chrice MAYOUMA is a contemporary French painter born in Brazzaville, Congo.
Passionate from his childhood for painting and drawing, he is an unconventional and self-taught artist who has not followed a classic course. Having completed his artistic education at home, he has always drawn on his daily experiences to work on his creations like a diary. At the age of 12, he arrived in France after having left the Congo following the various civil wars which shook the country in the 90s. The horror visions of the war deeply marked his artistic approach, he decided to now take his brushes to paint in his canvases only what is most positive in Man. Through a gallery of universal, inspiring, and committed characters, he integrates the image into its natural part and exalts the freedom to be. He claims an optimistic art marked by a strong humanism. In a figurative style, he works mainly with mixtures of oil paint and charcoal. Idealist, he presents each of his plastic works as inspirational totems allowing to reveal the most seductive part of human nature.
