10:32 am
festivals and exhibitions across the world. but to day, we are meeting up and coming congolese artist, whose work really making chassis art scene, take longer holes with our art. we go to people on the streets because when we performing art centers, nobody sees us. only the people in high places come to see us there, but we want to be seen by congress. people africans like us on the course. so my name is particular to i'm an artist in duck pu yellow. the a bell. i'm self taught performer. i didn't go to art school, i've not been doing art for 7 years. in the heart of kinshasa, famous art neighborhood, latania life, the artists collected industrial of even the house of beautiful life. here, the artist residencies are for artists like patrick, self taught. but one thing to dedicate their lives to be, i think i've also in the past it was difficult for people to
10:33 am
understand. when i went back home, everyone would come and they would even call to say, where are you? i tell them i'm at home and they would say no, you're not at home. you've been at the river all looking through the trash. but after a while i started explaining to them, not my art is not trash or you cycle trash and turn it into. and slowly the started to understand. yeah, yeah. klaus one, the family and community have accepted choice appreciation for his work in terms of financial games. it's hard to come by. the vs these odd world is largely self organizing. collective like bees or supported through the efforts of more successful humblest artist, as well as a handful for an art initiative for the artist here performances and the chances to sell their artworks. and we appreciate the additional
10:34 am
big they are always difficulties. they are. people come here and say, i'll buy these for 500 euros. they take it, and afterwards we see that they sell 842-503-0000 euros. and there is no fair remuneration for the creator to walk us. because we have children, we have houses to rent and families. i left a school and that is all that them is a 954030 his merrill, his mom. they force him to questions out like this class lately. for my mean, i've only gone up. we go was united, but literally colonialist came and divided us like a kick. when you are in front of a broken mirror, you are not going to see yourself in full. so this is what has happened to africa. and specifically, congo are the same time. the mirror also shows us. the beauty is the solar lunar
10:35 am
iowa law. both the laser printer quite come to saucy. we've been called saucers, deli quinn's, but afterwards, after watching us by staying with us, they understood us all day that blue we are play and they go by. we also do a great service for our city. we pick up the trash on the road and turn it into art in order to restore kin labelle kinshasa the beautiful. because right now our city is filled with trash. let me know, and if you can let bear with them all i can say is wow, you know, making something beautiful out of trash shows real geno's in my opinion. but congolese art is not just importance for the country by the whole world. did you know, unesco has recently added congolese bloomberg to its list of intangible, wild heritage. the musical was entre on dance is also referred to as the song
10:36 am
chuckles congolese history to celebration and morning. but still not all congolese feel like their cultural heritage is appreciated enough. in kinshasa we met some artists from all over the country who told us about the struggles the fees in the our quest for recognition and support for the our work. this takes us street to our streets debate. ah, hi everyone, my name is wendy bash, and you are watching the 77 percent magazine. we are here in king cesar, in the democratic republic of a de congo in this city. there is music and art everywhere. so today we are talking about god sure, and appreciation of the cultural heritage. i'm going to the 1st expert alice, can you tell us what our means to you law bowmois acts for me. it's something that
10:37 am
defines you. what is the component that describe so you are that shows our identity . and so in short, our art is us. that's it. the wife no class he knew, follow. i don't remember, don't even have whoo, or i clear. so i'm going to, oh actually, now you are one of the 1st female rapper e india. see you must have had a lot of challenges to get where you are today. can you tell us about dog stickers that you have to face in your car? you have it all complete with don't with look, i hear this up the old grammy almost. well, 1st of all, i think that being a woman in the rap world, which is considered to be less noble than rhumba is already a problem. you see there are men who look at you like, what is this woman doing and wrapped up our in my case, i have my family that was there for me even when nobody believed in what i was doing the choir, even when we were called dreamers little at the time we were just considered crazy people who were getting into something that was out of all work monty,
10:38 am
i double my fan, jim don is out of lucas, john moore. i will now go to miss yolanda, your party is willing, the country to day. you how do you support them? sidney? okay, tomorrow no panel, not ladon doubled. eliza, good day. it don't go pip. we are taking our time 1st to listen to them as people, as we especially put him fresh on the government. still that a copyrights are respected. and we also fighting against piracy. because the also make money of the artist that is also professionally develop. it will or the lad to pass short so see importance your. i love we did go with her. i aunt emma did. why do tell much of it you like them? so you said that you are working in terms of copyrights. i was now jumped to by at shamela, in terms of copyright t, indiana. the do you agree with christy. lou move down to g. her to taylor, his gentleman. ship oscar, i think so. call me there. some efforts are tabbing made. it but they are not effective, they're not effective because the minister of culture is not very involved. sonic who julius emptied bar enamel. so what you are telling us the afternoon is that in
10:39 am
them of copyright and cultural policies, nothing else done here. so that makes you disagree. absolutely. well, yeah, you did. absolutely. there have been efforts by the previous half of the current minister of the minister of culture who made the mischa plants. but every time any minister comes in, it doesn't work out. we only start from scratch, define a closet, will we ask ourselves, what's going on? i'd have people r idle seeking on the hands of what they are going to walk to make real reform, digital reform massey. thank you very much. now i'm going back to alice homeless should room like lou. they say they support us on copyright issues. i'm going to stay on that right now. i've been in a lawsuit for 2 years against a big very company that infringed my copyrights. and i brought all the proofs forward now it up and saw that just is us. it's one ways in this country. now. i as a small fish who does not have $100000.00 to bribe people,
10:40 am
i find myself sing monsters. i find myself 1st sing, monsters facing a multinational the bribes important people who are in the sockets. there have been accusations of corruption, of these judicial level as well. suddenly nothing has been done about it for the last 2 years or short on the food logistics of it. do santiago, give a we have a concrete example here of an artist whose right have been violated. mr. lama was talking about copyrights and your party is running the country. what you want to say to what you jan cindy, do what he's saying is the reason why we came to power. the president repeated it, even in gama. he said, if we have a real problem with our justice system, who will not be able to change the country, we have to change the country with everyone's involvement, dumont. so now we are going to look at this treacherous because you have out is here, we're talking about copyright. they're talking about the value of they were, do you at this point, feel that you have been some point in some spoke to her nestle, we're
10:41 am
a congolese structure. we thought are the help of the institutions. but if it doesn't work, it's just not going to work as a result, or we don't have any help. but we're making doing with what we have about to help the i little of perkins, or even our coverage for ah, what the exterior. no. so to know liz, after a decent, so i'm going directly to deal doroty. mr. gibbons out, what do you want to st. jude? the problem is global. it's the responsibility of the politicians. but it's also the stakeholders who are responsible. the artist must fight. we have been able to make our rumble famous on the other side of europe. thanks to this musician, and that's without any support from politics. why did this happen? they understood that they have to sell their product orders. so hello. every thing that we heard today is there any or for the cultural sector here in the assay ball yet yet liz walk while yet miss walk past school. we're, there is hope for me,
10:42 am
there is hope or because we will not stop fighting. we won't stop doing what we used to do because they are to be political representatives to what it means that they are powerless. but at the same time, they try to blame us. my hope is that mr. the ambassador will help us to find solutions to our problems. to day, let's look at all these for us as we have here. data casino, who to day is doing huge things. but why did doug get more support from french and belgium government than their congolese government? i have toward the united states of toward many countries in the world of hard support from the us government, the french government, the english government, the belgium government, but never from the congress government. however, since i am an artist here, i pay the convoy his government every 2 years. i renew my artist cards, which are useless to me. why are you the head of a country if you don't know how to do anything for us? well, i have a lot to say,
10:43 am
but i want to stop here once i get here from bonham. bullshit book to the d. r. ms . romero taylor, i don't know. let's close reef or her class. is there any hope for the cultural sector today in the asi, i would say the same thing as my brother when it comes to having hope we do what we do because we are passionate and we want the generations that will come after us to be able to say that there are people who fought for such a class people. i think that in this sense, yes, if we have held up. but it is a little difficult because the statement that he made is clear. if you have 5 years and 3 years have already passed and nothing has happened and 2 years, i laughed well, you should not be surprised when songs like the ones of alice are coming alice, we are coming to the end of our sure, thank you all for watching the feel free to share and comment on our page. you know, talking about art brings out the passion in people. but clearly the crate of art
10:44 am
industry needs a lot of support and attention from governments. what do you think that you want to watch more of our debates? visit our youtube page, and don't forget to share your thoughts with us. but a we're not done with arts. let's go to ghana and meet brian star. i'm walk waffle . his paintings are being snapped up by international collectors. but how did a fisherman's son from a cra become one of the wells most sought after contemporary artist? let's find out in his artwork touches millions and he sold for such the paintings of um walk waffle. are weld famous, the gun in artist whose work has been compared to that of austria expressionist mustache, gustav claimed and egon. sheila has fought a courier literally with his own 2 hands being an artist. i think that in guy, you know for sure that you don't have a career like you don't have a life. no,
10:45 am
you're not gonna make anything for me like this. you know from the beginning, because your parents love you this support you, but they would tell you point blank that you're not gonna make anything from it. not that college of hide. and he's a waffle. attended a private our school in a crop. and in 2014, he got a scholarship to study at vienna art academy in austria. so this walker walker, i often say a more co is a sculptor. i feel he's sculpting his paintings. his characters. he hasn't been to a new visual language with regards to skin, especially black skin is up to lap 11. for the 1st time since a mako blah forced college days. some of his early works are going on display in the austrian capital in 2020 to 13 self portraits for 2017

hours in a space where i needed to like looking to myself and to for that article. i timed in mid st. i like painting black bodies in hing deanna, you have less black bodies is just a way, so in a way to keep up painting, dr. bodies will be just to looking to myself, it nowadays. sales office wakes up woman and collect as one a piece of the action marco bow, awful, left, 6000000, 800000. you know, back our sweat. that a 1000000 at an auction in 2020. his works sought for 15 times your estimated price, driven by grow in demand for wax by black artists. so the 1200000. congratulations jack. i'm walker waffle is in demand in the fashion well to parry labeled your even put his paintings on busiest summer collection. he is enjoying his success by the steering clare of the high paying a cra,
10:47 am
he wants to start an asshole in this neighborhood to push other young gagnon artists to reach des, potential hang on a will and how to paint. and i mean, we have the technique, we can, we can do it. but you know, presentation in lynn in how to, to talk about someone else's working, you know, getting criticized to, to be better. is something that we did not get. so i think that's what i'm giving them and maybe they see that waffle has made it to the top, but he knows stain on top. is an art in itself. it's a beautiful thing too for special, but neos i just have to know that she does not know festing and everything can go wrong. you know, it can also disappear like that if you don't. 2 all the best to i'm walking waffle and all other artists trying to make it to the top and stay in there. now,
