If there is one area in which the Africans of the diaspora are constantly in motion, it is no doubt that of the night with its dances, concerts and other …. And, in the center of these evenings, several event organizers, African DJs, friends, brothers and partners faithful to multiple and proven skills.

Sponsored by Afrika Market, a Cameroonian best artist in Anderlecht …

The fifth edition of the Anderlecht artists’ tour, still called ITINERART, which took place from 20 to 29 April, has crowned the Cameroonian artist Jean Baptiste Mvola, presented by Afrika Market, as winner of the 2018 audience award.

More than 100 exhibiting artists in a public or private place of the municipality who met during this fifth artistic adventure. Indeed, ITINERART which aims to promote and support artists, is held every two years in Anderlecht. This promotional vision fully reflects the very essence of Afrika Market’s cultural commitment, which is defined through Afrik’art vandaag, as a promoter of African cultural values ​​in all their diversity.

It is therefore logical that Afrika Market was invited by the Brussels MP and President of ITINERART, in the person of Isabelle Emmery, to participate in this fifth edition of the Anderlecht artists’ course. Our artists previously exhibitors for Afrik’art vandaag, namely, Jean Baptiste Mvola and Walid Glaied, joined by the Cameroonian sculptor Charles Djeumou, have had no trouble integrating this exciting adventure and deploying their artistic know-how during the 10 days of this course.

The revelation of the artist who won the Audience Award was a great honor for Afrika Market as ambassador and a great joy for Jean Baptiste Mvola, who gained artistic recognition from his peers. This prize offers him, among other things, an exclusive exhibition of his works in the House of Artists of the municipality of Anderlecht in April 2019.

We offer here, exclusively, the emotions and impressions of our winner of this fifth edition of Itinérart.

Hello Jean Baptiste Mvola.

Hello Josephine.

Tell us about J.B Mvola the artist. Who are you ?

Jean Baptiste Mvola is an African artist of Cameroonian origin. I define myself as a contemporary painter, having several universes in creativity and originality. I am passionate about abstract and surrealism. I also paint cubism and a bit of impressionism. Some of my paintings bring art lovers closer to the style of Picasso. My different walks are around humor, while emphasizing the light that refers to the sun of Africa.
