"Congo Stars" exhibition: Congolese art from five decades
The image of a prosperous Congo and hope, 2006
In this painting, titled "L'image d'un Congo prospère et d'espoir" the artist, Makenge Mamungwa, alias SAPINart, has a vision of what his future home would look like. Although the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is rich in natural resources, it remains one of the poorest countries in the world. But the artistic scene, on the other hand, shows a thriving and prosperous country.
