Painter Jean-Bosco Monsengo (born 1959), and known as Shula in the city of Kinshasa, Congo, learned his craft under the tutelage of Moke, a prominent artist of the Kinshasa school of painting that flowered in the wake of Zaire’s independence. Shula’s complex narrative scenes stem from everyday life, and are often critiques of political injustice or the consequences of overpopulation on global ecology.
