Tinga Tinga is the largest artistic movement in Africa which was started by a single man - Edward Saidi Tingatinga in 1968. However its roots could be found in local tradition of decorating hut walls in eastern Africa. Therefore it could be also labeled as "Aboriginal Art of Africa".
When Edward Saidi Tingatinga died more than 40 years ago, he left behind two children. His son Daudi passed away on 12 May 2015. His daughter Martina is still living in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Today, she teamed up with Daniel Augusta of TANART to introduce the art to international audience.
