    Dolet Malalu

    Born in 1980 in Kinshasa, Dolet Malalu is an avant-garde painter who challenges traditional figuration in Congolese art. Holding a diploma in Latin and Philosophy, he later graduated in Plastic Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in Kinshasa, where he continues to reside.

    Dolet's artistic vision is a fusion of graffiti style and contemporary urban themes. He uses his art to explore and depict the evolving customs of urban life, drawing parallels between Kinshasa and other metropolises worldwide. His preferred mediums include wood, kraft paper, and linen canvas, reflecting his eclectic taste and innovative approach.

    Unlike the prevailing academic figurative art, Dolet's work aims to liberate visual representation, breaking away from conventional norms. He employs simple materials such as acrylics, pastels, and collages, showcasing his versatility and mastery of paper-based techniques.

    Inspired by the raw graffiti seen on Kinshasa's streets, Dolet infuses his pieces with a sense of spontaneity and playfulness reminiscent of childhood sketches. This nod to innocence and creativity challenges viewers to reconsider established perceptions, inviting them to embrace a new perspective on contemporary art and urban culture.
