Kina Maua N'Pango

You told me one day that we were all the same. But even today, the color of my skin confuses many people’s minds…

This is me

About

me

Born in Africa

Kina Maua N’pango was born in Angola in May 1970. At the age of four she left her homeland because of the violent civil war that raged following the country’s newly acquired independence from the Portuguese colonialism. For the following six months she lived in a refugee camp on the outskirts of Kinshasa. Kina’s art was born and developed from her past and present experiences in the different contexts and countries where she lived.

International interests

Among the exhibitions in which the artist participated, we can mention the one on contemporary art which took place in 2003 at the United Nations Library in Geneva. Moreover, in 2007 Kina Maua N’pango engaged, in an artistic research focused on the African historical figures and their invisibilisation.

Kina's work can be found in private collections in the world, such as New York, Geneva, Hong-Kong, Milan, Lugano, Düsseldorf, Berlin and Miami.

Nature & art

In 2016, Kina was invited to collaborate on the World Environment Day, where she created works focusing on the preservation and protection of endangered animals.

The issues Kina deals are focused on discrimination and social prejudice. That is a reflection of the scars imprinted on her soul.

Creations, such as “Negra di Merda”, “Diálogo com Jesus” and "African's money" addressed specifically in the thematic of abuse of power over minorities and racial intolerance, inspired by her own experiences.

Engagement

Since 2020, the house where Florbela Espanca lived in Alentejo became to the artist a new cultural project, where between poetry and sculpture, the forgotten poet can be found.

Currently Kina Maua N'Pango is working between Germany and Portugal.
