5 MARCH 2015 | Death of Pierre Bodo

It was with great sorrow that we learned of the death of Pierre Bodo on Thursday 5 March 2015.

We are losing a friend and we will miss him a great deal. The deprived children of the district of Nzadi Kingabwa will miss him even more: he wanted to give them an opportunity in life by offering them the chance to study at his education support centre. African contemporary art, meanwhile, is losing a highly original and immediately recognizable figurehead. He is one of the artists who have helped make Congo an acknowledged centre for the arts.

The gallery wishes to send the Bodo family its most sincere condolences.
