LOCALLY MADE, GLOBALLY LOVED
In 1968, we established a small studio in Dar es Salaam, the capital city of Tanzania, marking the beginning of our journey in the African art industry. Initially, our studio catered primarily to foreign tourists who visited us. However, our aspirations were more extensive—we aimed to create a globally recognized African art brand and introduce our exceptional, unique paintings to audiences around the world. Presently, our signature style has gained widespread acclaim as the most popular and sought-after across the continent, boasting a loyal customer base that extends globally.
Every African art piece and painting available for purchase on our website is meticulously handcrafted by our skilled local artists, utilizing only the finest materials, including premium-quality oil and acrylic paints, as well as durable canvases. Our commitment to sustainability is a point of pride, reflected in our use of eco-friendly packaging materials for all orders, which are shipped directly from our gallery. We conscientiously source materials locally and engage indigenous artists in the creation of pieces that authentically capture the essence of African art.
At our core, we are dedicated to providing an exceptional customer experience. With this in mind, we strive to offer a diverse range of art pieces that cater to various tastes and preferences. Our overarching goal is to promote and preserve Africa's rich cultural heritage through our art, and we are eager to share this passion with art enthusiasts across the globe.

I love them and they naturally found their place in my living room and dining room."

Epic Craftsmanship. Superb Attention to Detail!
"After being amazed by a remarkably detailed TingaTinga painting of birds at a coffee shop in Arusha, Tanzania, I took a photo of it. Later, I reached out to TingaTinga through their Instagram account, inquiring if they could recreate it. Not only did they provide exceptional customer service, but their artists also did an outstanding job. Just two weeks later, an unbelievably accurate replica of the same painting arrived at our home in Kenya. I am immensely grateful to the artists, and the TingaTinga African Art team, and I eagerly anticipate hanging it on the wall. I cannot thank all of you enough for this incredible experience."
— Sarah McG,Kenya

I absolutely adore my painting depicting a school of fish!"
