Tanga is the art of Africa in which hobby colors are used more and more because of their color and looks unique to other pictures of the world. Its creation may not be called ancient, but its influence still holds the art alive today. “By looking at Tanga Tinga’s paintings, we start to see the world in a childlike way, in a colorful, cheerful, and hilarious way,” says Dale Agusta, organizer of the Art Artists’ Organization. The art originated in Tanzania, and this is why art is reflected in the lives of the people and animals there.
Tingitanga Art, created by Edward Saeed Tingitanga, was born in 1932 and was raised in southern Tanzania, where wild animals and sensual sightings were etched into his heart when he was eight. About a year later, they left their home in search of a job, and a few years later they moved to the capital of Tanzania, where they found a financial job, and they were fond of playing and dancing to music. He earned a reputation as a musician, so he stepped into the world of art.
There was a new turning point in Edward’s life, and he got a job at a government hospital in Dar es Salaam, and now he had some free time in which he began to paint colorful memories of his childhood. Their distinctive style became known as the Tangitanga Art. Edward couldn’t buy special brushes, colors and other items used in the painting, so he used things that could be found in any shop. For example, they used paint that was applied to bicycles and they made their paintings on wooden planks. Is. Fnpary colorful looks very good on the smooth surface of the boards.
Edward used to create art in a very simple style – he used only one or two colors for the look and then painted a picture of an animal with fond colors on it. In view of this, they did not add anything else or scene.
