Event Details

This exhibition showcases a series of animal paintings made by members of the Tingatinga Arts Cooperative Society in the 1990s. The Tingatinga style began with Tanzanian painter Edward Saidi (E.S.) Tingatinga (b. Dar es Salaam, 1939; d. 1972). His paintings are characterized by flat, stylized animal depictions clearly outlined against a monochrome ground. Toward the end of his short life, Tingatinga took on apprentices. A cohort of his former students continues to train students and keep alive his distinctive style. Tingatinga is organized by the Fowler Museum at UCLA and curated by Erica P. Jones, curator of African arts.
