Welcome to TANART
More than forty years after his death, Edward Saidi Tingatinga, the founder of Tinga Tinga art style, remains one of the most influential figures in contemporary African art. Tingatinga’s work inspired hundreds of painters in East Africa including George Lilanga or David Mzuguno. TANART developed a website where you can see and buy some of these artists' paintings
