Lio Bumba (BUMBAKiNi) is a self-taught artist who brings a global view to the Denver art scene. Of Congolese descent, he boldly envisions the modern American experience from a black man’s perspective in swaths of folkloric imagery inspired by his African descent, European upbringing, and the decade he’s now spent based out of Colorado. His works range between paintings, drawings, mixed-media; to digital and performative art installations.
