"College de la sagesse (Kalasi ki nduenga)" (2003) is a visually arresting figurative painting by famed Contemporary African artist, Chéri Samba. This acrylic and glitter painting measures 31.90 x 39.50 inches (81 x 100.3 cm), is in excellent condition and comes with a formal certificate of authenticity. Samba's paintings almost always include text in French and Lingala, commenting on life in Africa and the modern world. Chéri Samba's breakthrough was the exhibition "Les Magiciens de la Terre at the Centre Georges Pompidou" in Paris in 1989, which was acclaimed internationally. In 2007, curator Robert Storr invited Samba to participate in the 52nd International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale.
