Africa sings and dances. Mixed media and collage. 59 x 45 cm. Signed and dated 1992. Botalatala Emmanuel is a self-taught artist who offers a rich and didactic work. Botalatala began his artistic career in the early 1980s Botalatala details the portrait of Congolese society by illustrating the different aspects of traditional daily life, sometimes enriching the art with political slogans of the time. In this way he came to develop a didactic and militant art that pushes the public to reflect on contemporary issues. For example, he addressed ecological issues, which earned him the eloquent nickname of "minister of rubbish".
