1 FEBRUARY 2014 I Miniature series from Papa Mfumu’Eto 1er

Papa Mfumu’Eto 1er, our famous artist-cartoonist-anthropologist, has just completed a stunning series of small works that use the possessions and ordinary consumer goods of the Congolese to depict their everyday lives. For once, products are the main subject of the paintings. Although they are commonplace and banal, they are vital to the daily lives of people from Kinshasa and consequently symbolize a place and time. Based at the heart of a working class neighbourhood in Kinshasa, Papa Mfumu’Eto 1er continues to provide an honest, talented and colourful depiction of contemporary working class society.
