Mufuki (B. 1973)

Brussels, Belgium

Mufuki Mukuna was born in Brussels in 1973, his father is a man from DR Congo who married a Belgian woman.

He studied monumental painting at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels. His work concentrates on exploring relentlessly the boundaries of figurative painting. In each of his paintings, Mufuki invites us to witness clashes, changes of life or attitudes boiled down to simply "human behaviour" with dark shades or a night time feel inspired by Motion Pictures, urban environments, Occidental or African elements. An abundance of images that highlight the loneliness human beings are often subjet to. A spiritual, raw and lively approach to painting, sometimes painful or even fascinating. In order to share his feeling of "being part of this World" within the scope of provoking an intense pictural emotion.
