Cyril Phan was born in Toulouse, in 1969, of a French mother and a Vietnamese father. His childhood was spent first in Vietnam, then in the South of France. At 14, he moved with his mother to Brazzaville, in the Democratic Republic of Congo—hence his signature, Kongo. Four years later he returned to France, where he settled in the greater Paris area, despite living and working between Paris, Hong Kong and Guadeloupe. The same diverse cultural influences that helped forge his identity and artistic style have made him a man at ease on every continent.
