Romario Lukau, known as “Rolook”, was born in Kinshasa in 1994. He is a graduate of the Institute of Fine Arts and the Academy of Fine Arts in Kinshasa. Through his art, Rolook takes a critical look at today’s politics and media. A committed artist who wishes to encourage the influence of contemporary Congolese artists, he co-founded the Tokeyi collective – ” Let’s move forward “, in Lingala – which aims to promote art and culture in Kinshasa.
Drawing inspiration from current events, from various questions on global issues such as global warming, pollution or the environment, and using various mediums: painting, performance, installations and his body as a canvas – in the manner of ancestral African techniques – Rolook seeks to encourage debate and reflection on societal and political issues.
