‘I want to teach Congolese people what art is’

Dina Ekanga is a Congolese artist who uses nails to create images on board.

She was inspired by the Nkisi Nkondi sculptures of the Kongo people, which often show nails embedded into wooden figures.

Dina hopes to use what she’s learnt about her culture and identity to share that knowledge with others.

Produced by Elodie Nicole Toto.
