Francklin Mbungu

Democratic Republic of Congo  • 1972

Presentation

Francklin MBUNGU was born in 1972, in Kinshasa, Congo.

Far removed from traditional Congolese popular painting, Franklin cuts, assembles, folds, superimposes the layers of paper, glues them with exceptional dexterity and adds colored threads, ribbons, wrapping paper, thus producing works almost in three dimensions.

You can find there with pleasure characters, flowers and objects that spring together to tell a story, their story.

This astonishing technique allows him to create scenes where the tactile and visual sensations of volumes dominate. Because everything is good to complete, highlight, highlight, dress up his canvases: papers and fabrics, but also a host of various materials (chains, strings, ribbons of all colors and all textures etc.), abundant, brilliant, whose "volubility" contributes to the expressionism of his works. Through this sometimes confusing approach, he creates vibrant and colorful portraits of his fellow Congolese, including the iconic 'sappers'.
