Glory Kanga’s works aim to raise awareness to the risks posed by climate change as well as the emergence of global pandemics. Through the use of bright colors and collage, Kanga highlights the interdependence of man and nature.  The hats frequently featured in his paintings represent protection of the environment.  The use of scraps of fabric (pagne) in many of his works highlights the need to recycle products that would normally be seen as waste.  Kanga is a graduate of the  Académie des Beaux-Arts in Kinshasa (DRC).
