We regret the sudden death of the son of E.S.Tingatinga on 12 May 2015. The only surviving child of E.S.Tingatinga is the daughter Martina who is living in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. It was her father, who started the artistic movement Tinga Tinga.
It has never been easier to order art works straight from Sub saharan Africa. I have 7 years experience of dealing with both emerging and internationally recognized artists. I processed orders for UNESCO, Flying Doctor, McKinsey and others. Do not hesitate to write me or call if you have any inovative idea. Everything is possible.
Daniel Augusta made also the following websites about African art:
We assist with authentications of art works, organizing exhibitions, providing information about artists and more. We consider all people who deal with Tinga Tinga art as our partners and we are excited to promote this unique art style together with you on the global level.
The website is run by Daniel Augusta, the managing director of the local Tanzania Art Licensing Agency, TANART. Tinga Tinga Studio is only one of activities of TANART.

This exceptional style makes it a great tool of communication between the artists and the world. The paintings are full of symbols and messages. No wonder that some of these paintings were seleceted for the collection of British Museum. The most traditional cartoon paintings depict shaby streets of Dar es Salaam, colourful markets on the countryside or the busy days on Zanzibar. See some paintings on www.NaiveBranding.com
