George Lilanga (1934-2005) was a Tanzanian painter and sculptor. He studied at the Tingatinga Painting School of Dar es Salaam and is also known internationally for his unique pictorial style, characterized by colourful figures and sharp silhouettes, highly dynamic and caricatural. In 1978, he participated in a collective exhibition of African artists in Washington DC. Among the 280 documents presented, approximately 100 were by Lilanga. It was on this occasion that he was compared to Jean Dubuffet. Keith Haring himself stated in an interview that he was influenced by Lilanga's work.
