Franck Dikisongele

Congolese 1968- 

Congolese visual artist Franck Dikisongele is considered one of the most talented products of l’Académie des Beaux-Arts in Kinshasa, where he obtained a Master’s degree in Visual Art in 2005 and is currently a lecturer. Dikisongele’s paintings are a complex combination of figuration and abstraction. He uses colour combined with strong gestural marks, monumental forms, and graphic signs. Strong contrasts in compositional elements express his social concerns and his imagination, whilst creating suspense in the quest for meaning and significance. “We paint and search the spiritual aspect of the ‘inner self’, which lies hidden in nature, behind the veil of all these appearances. The objectification of our own subjectification...”, says the artist.

Dikisongele has exhibited extensively in The Democratic Republic of Congo, where he has received numerous awards and has participated in several group and solo exhibitions on the African continent, in Europe, and in the United States of America.
