Henrick Lilanga is the grandson of the late Makonde Tanzanian artist George Lilanga. He learned from his grandfather and works in a style derived from him, depicting a world of mischievous mashetani (devils). Like his grandfather's work, it is not truly of the tingatinga style, but spans the worlds of both the tingating artists and the Makonde woodcarvers of their roots.
