Lot Details

"Green Shetani" is a dynamic example from famous contemporary African artist George Lilanga's decades long series colorful figurative sculptures in the round, with his cast of characters typically in modern dress. Dimensions: 27.15 inches/69.00 cm high, in perfect condition. An admitted influence on the works of Pop artist Keith Haring, Lilanga’s sculptures and paintings are hard to miss, moving beyond their traditional roots to become energetic caricatures and snapshots of contemporary African life. In 1978, a milestone in Lilanga's career occurred when over 100 pieces of his work were featured in a group exhibition in Washington D.C. where his works had a major influence on the new American Pop Art generation many of whom, including Haring, viewed these in person. Will ship from Europe.
