Eyenga Bokamba is an artist who is most drawn to abstraction as a means of expressing her perceptions of complex realities. Her work has been widely collected by public libraries, universities, and private buyers who value the spacious expansiveness and luminosity of her creations.
Eyenga produces large-scale paintings using acrylic, calligrapher’s ink and mixed media to create layers of translucence, sometimes including text that may or may not gure into the nal composition visible on the canvas. In her latest body of work, the abstracted figure emerges, giving rise to a new visual language of gesture and movement.
Eyenga holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Minnesota and a graduate degree from Harvard University. In recognition of the high caliber of her work she has been inducted into the National Association of Women Artists.
