His teaching was based on what he called the universal rules of African art. As a historian and theologian he made a great contribution to the study of African culture and history, especially in the realms of cultural and religious anthropology and iconology. Mveng considered African liturgical art to be an expression of the cosmic celebration of life. In order to enable the production of African liturgical art, Mveng founded a religious art studio where he trained artists.
