Biography / Sibomana

Based in Rome, Sibomana (1986) is an Italian-Belgian artist who grew up in different countries between Africa and Europe. He is part of the class of 2019 in the URBAN NATION Artist in Residence Scholarship Program.

Since years, Sibomana has been developing an art putting people and communities at the centre, advocating for peace and freedom. His pieces always tell a story, the story of individuals he personally met, individuals who are the most important part of his artistic process. And talk about identity, multi culturality, migration, emotion. He brought his message to several countries, mainly in the streets, willing to catch the attention of bystanders by using murals and a specific artistic technique combining oversized black and white photographs portraits and bright color painting.
