Tingatinga art


Afican tingatinga art
Artist Painter Edward Tingatinga was born in 1932 and in 1972 Tingatinga was accidentally killed by a policeman who mistook him for a fugitive, but his Tingatinga art style became popular in both Tanzania, Kenya, and a large part of East Africa. His subjects were stereotypical African icons, such as wildlife or savannah landscapes using recycled, low-cost materials, such as masonite squares, ceramic fragments, and bicycle paint.
