Lot description
"Bado Nina Umia Na Sijic Nitapora Lini" (1999). Enamel on masonite. Dimensions: 23.62 x 23.62 inches (60 x 60 cm). Unframed, excellent condition. An admitted influence on the painting style of American Pop artist Keith Haring, the vibrant, colorful paintings of famed Contemporary African artist George Lilanga are hard to miss, moving beyond traditional roots to become lively snapshots of contemporary African life, presenting the people of Lilanga's native Tanzania through brilliant, visually rhythmic narratives filled with happy figures who play, relax and romance to the "Mapico dance", the festive dance and music of his homeland. In 1978, over 100 paintings by Lilanga were exhibited in Washington, D.C., U.S in a group exhibition, viewed and admired by notable American Pop artists, including Keith Haring, whose work bears admitted influence of Lilanga's paintings such as this. Ships from Europe, excellent provenance.
