Jean-Paul Kala is a sculptor and designer residing in Belgium. His sleek works constitute a true ode to the powerful and authentic nature of his birthplace, North Kivu, a province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where he was born.

Drawn to materials and mechanics, the hands of the artist are always in motion, and when he discovered welding and metal shaping as a teenager, it was a revelation that took hold of his being: he became a recognized expert in the field.

The European dream had been in his plans for years. In the 2000s, Jean-Paul Kala decided to settle in Belgium, where he perfected his technique alongside the best, thus gaining recognition from his peers and the most discerning enthusiasts.

Likely influenced in part by the ancestral art of Imigongo, a precursor to abstract art, Jean-Paul Kala launched his own high-end furniture brand, R&J, in 2013, which quickly gained recognition among enthusiasts in search of beauty and exclusivity.

Jean-Paul Kala’s creations are characterized by organic, elegant, and generous curves. Technical mastery combined with extreme precision transforms metal into masterful works of contemporary art.
