Sam-Ilus is largely inscribed in the Congolese popular painting tradition. His paintings are composed of multiple scenes that aim at describing situations with sincerity, through which the artist wishes to denounce the abuses and excesses of our world. What will be the future of the promises made during the elections ? Illusions of a progress ? The end of wars ? Or, more painful, « Non plus jamais ça » about the cruel violence against women ? If an artist has to protest and to denounce the derives of the world, Sam Ilus perfectly fulfills this role. Sam Ilus has exhibited in many countries and several of his works have been successfully auctioned.
