Artist, Freddy Tsimba welding pieces for a sculpture in his workshop. He says he finds his inspiration in the suffering experienced by many communities in his country. An advocate for disarmament, much of his art is fashioned from the remnants of weapons and he also likes to use old cutlery: ''There are lots of spoons in Kinshasa, but not much to put on them'', he says.
