Born in 1978, Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo. Lives and works in Kinshasa.

Houston Maludi studied at Kinshasa’s School of Fine Arts. Upon graduating, he began his own aesthetics research under the influence of Cubist painters George Braque and Pablo Picasso. Maludi developed his own form of “Cubism” that emphasized perfect harmony between geometric shapes: “Monochromique Cubisme Symbiotique Quantique”. To illustrate a perfect and discreet unity between the geometric shapes and the other elements in his work, Maludi only uses black & white. This choice allows him to highlight the contrasts and oppositions in paintings. The line is a central element in his drawings. As Maludi explains: “In the symbiotic, error does not exist. If you know how to use it, it becomes a line integrated into the composition of the work”.
