【CURATED】 Tingatinga Painting Tanzania / タンザニア ティンガティンガ絵画

2019-10-28 14:44:05
Tingatinga is a painting style that developed in the second half of the 20th century in the Oyster Bay area in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and later spread to most East Africa. Tingatinga is one of the most widely represented forms of tourist-oriented paintings in Tanzania, Kenya and neighboring countries. The genre is named after its founder, Tanzanian painter Edward Said Tingatinga.

Tingatinga is traditionally made on masonite, using several layers of bicycle paint, which makes for a brilliant and highly saturated colors. Many elements of the style are related to requirements of the tourist-oriented market; for example, the paintings are usually small so they can be easily transported, and subjects are intended to appeal to the Europeans and Americans. In this sense, Tingatinga paintings can be considered a form of "airport painting". The drawings themselves can be described as both naïve and caricatural, and humor and sarcasm are often explicit.

ティンガティンガは、1960年代にタンザニア・ダルエスサラームにおいて、エドワード・サイディ・ティンガティンガ (1932-1972) が生み出したポップアートの手法。描かれる対象としては、サルやヘビなどの身近な動植物から、自然における神聖とされているものまで多岐にわたるが、一般に人工物よりも自然物が多く描かれる。また、創始者のエドワードが美術の教育を受けていなかったこともあり、自由な作風が特徴的である。
