Though not as widely known, Cameroon native Elada exhibits a diverse range and incorporates a variety of styles in his work. The private collections include both paintings and sculptures from an array of talented artist.

Albert Tuzolana, who was born in Kolo (Bas Congo) in 1955, studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of Kinshasa until 1980. He was the first African included in the dictionary Arto Belgian. He currently lives in Belgium, where he is a representative of the African platform from the museum of Tervuren.

Rhode Bath-Scheba Makoumbou was born in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo in 1976. She was introduced to painting by her father, the painter David Makoumbou. Her work highlights the social activities of African women. Her style while distinctly African also exhibits the influence of realism, expressionism, and cubism. In 2003 Rhode began an international career, and now exhibits world wide.
