Aime Mpane’s work is informed by a political consciousness that comes out of his awareness of Africa’s colonial history that has evolved since the Berlin Conference of 1885 which divided Africa into territories of European control. The violent atrocities that ensued during this period of exploitation and domination are well documented and continue to affect modern Congolese society.

Aime Mpane was born 1968 into a family of artists in Kinshasa, Congo. He graduated in Sculpture from the Academie des Beaux-Arts, Kinshasa in 1990 and Ecole National Superieure des Arts Visuels de La Cambre, Bruxelles, Belgium in 2000, He presently teaches Sculpture at the Academie International d’Ete de Wallonie, Libramont, Belgium and as a Visiting Professor at the Academie des Beaux-Art in Kinshasa.
