FEATURED ARTIST

EDDY KAMUANGA ILUNGA

Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga

Born in 1991 in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, where he currently lives and work, Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga graduated from the Institute of Fine Art, Kinshasa in 2009. He then joined the Academy of Fine Arts, Kinshasa but soon sought emancipation from the Academy in establishing the studio “M’Pongo,” a collective of young artists in Kinshasa looking for a creative and individual style. At the same time he took part in several exhibitions in the DRC and abroad, including an exhibition at the French Institute Gallery, Brazzaville, Congo, and Dak’Art OFF, Dak’Art: The Biennale of Contemporary African Art, Senegal, 2014. He has exhibited most recently at Saatchi Gallery, London as part of Pangaea II. Kamuanga draws from the structural complexity of his hometown and revisits the traditional culture of the Mangbetu people. Referencing different forms of advertising and photography as well as traditional aesthetics, his paintings are an amalgam of complementary pop cultural forms, including music, fashion and dance.
