Artist Bio

Eyenga Bokamba (she/her/hers)


Eyenga Bokamba is a visual artist and designer who is most drawn to abstraction as a means of expressing the complexity of identity, politics, relationships, and my understanding of the world. Eyenga produces both small and large scale works on paper and canvas using mixed media, acrylics, watercolors, and calligraphy ink to create layers of translucence and expansive inquiry. Eyenga’s creative practice is based in the United States and Italy. Among her accomplishments are a Bush Leadership Fellowship, four solo shows in the US and one in Italy and induction into the National Association of Women Artists. Bokamba currently serves as a board member of the National Performance Network.

Recent shows include What will I do with all this freedom? a solo show at the NAWA Gallery in New York City (2018)Personal Structuresa juried international group show in the Venice Biennale at the European Cultural Center (2019), the Minnesota Black Fine Arts Show (2019-2020) and the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s Foot in the Door 5 (2020-2021). “My greatest desire, says the artist, “is to create work that pivots on an axis of understanding and advances our collective consciousness about what it means to be alive, thriving and empathetic in today’s world.”

Upcoming shows include The universe is conspiring for your every happiness: New Paintings by Eyenga Bokamba on view May 14 –September 17, 2022 at the UM Physicians Mill City Clinic in Minneapolis and Color, Line, Form: Contemporary Abstract Art in Minnesota on view June 24 – August 13, 2022 at the Anderson Center in Red Wing, MN.
