Jonathan Vatunga

 

​​Jonathan Vatunga (aka VAT) was born in 1996 in Kinshasa (DRC) where he lives and works today. Recently graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, this young Congolese painter quickly made a name for himself. His multilayer artworks composed with paint, glue and engravings mix abstraction and realism. Through his art, Jonathan often stresses the importance of social interactions in the times of individuality. His subjects are both unique and plural, simple and complex at the same time. Behind joyful aesthetics created by vibrant compositions and vivid colors, the artists manages to confront us with some difficult matters such as gun violence, conflicts and artworks spoliation. In this way, Jonathan wishes to pay his hommage to the victims of violent acts and send a message of hope and awake the conciseness, all in delicacy and poetry.
