African Contemporary Art - Tingtinga 2013
This event has ended.
Tingatinga art is a painting style developed in the late 1960's in Tanzania by the artist Edward Saidi Tingatinga（1937～1972）, a contemporary art form which draws upon image of animals and birds, the scenes of the Savannah and everyday life, depicted in 6 colors of enameled paint.
Throughout the exhibition, in addition to these works, a series of events will be held with live painting from artist Abbasi Mbuka as well as an "African Market" of colourful textiles, coffee, tea, scents and other Tingatinga goods.
