After studying art at Cyrene Mission under Canon Patterson (1895-1974), Kingsley Sambo worked as a cartoonist for the African Daily News in Salisbury. In 1962 he joined a group of artists working at the Rhodes National Gallery. His art represents a variation on the European tradition of Expressionism: Afro-German Expressionism. Sambo's expressionistic technique and use of bright primary colours reference the work of Van Gogh.
