Maurice BAZUNGULA. (DRC, Mpasa, 1943)
Abstract faces. Oil on isorel panel. 50 x 75 cm. After a difficult adolescence as an orphan, Maurice Bazungula met people who introduced him to the arts, particularly to painting. He was a student at Alhadeff School by the Belgian Maurice Alhadeff, promoting African art from 1950 to 1978. Mr. Alhadeff himself directly instructed Bazungula. There he developed his style of painting In 1965, he met painter Bala Jean, who employed him as a sales assistant to sell his work Bata Jean gave the young man the opportunity to observe the creative activity in the studio In 1967, Bazungula began to paint and is now known for using a rich color palette in his work His artistic creations hold a metaphysical message that goes beyond its environment and reality and emerges profoundly from Africa From the 1960s on, Bazungula participated in numerous exhibitions in France, Italy, the United States, and DRC.
