Johannesburg-based Congolese artist Thonton Kabeya explores the universe of dance through painting.

About

More than a dance punctuated by music, la Rumba Rosa is poetry, the art of living with others, the art of being a sapeur, the art of smiling at life. Thonton's art brings together all communities -- straight, gay, lesbian, children, parents, grandparents, women and men.  "African artists are often led to give a negative image of Africa, with its political conflicts, corruption, inequality, exploitation. Africa is however, above all else, the joy of living, music, dance, the sun, the joy of sharing exhilirating parentheses together. This is La Rumba Rosa and I like to see that my work reflects joy!"
