Text is in English and French. “This book and their Zairian popular artist Chéri Samba is the first in a series of monographs on Contemporary African Artists. While art historians can hardly keep up with the ever-growing artistic movements in Africa, professor Bogumil Jewsiewicki, in his comprehensive analysis, invites us to focus on a single painter, Chéri Samba. He examines Samba’s personality, the characteristics of his work and his links both with the past and the present and with the African and Western worlds. It is important to note that his conflicts and dilemmas are universal and shared by many popular artists today.”
