There is really no such thing as copies of African paintings. Copying is a problem for the overvalued European art or Antiquates, which sells for thousands and often millions of dollars. In contrast, African art is unjustly and grossly undervalued. Even wonderfully crafted pieces, that take days or months to make, sell for several hundred dollars. This is because the time and skill of African artist is so poorly valued and rewarded. This creates the situation in which any piece reproduced outside Africa will be much more expensive than the original art. Just look how much work goes into each of these artworks!
People who buy a ‘Tinga Tinga’ painting for nominal prices are susceptible of being conned by unscrupulous third parties acting on behalf of real Tinga Tinga painters. The use of low-quality diluted paints or substandard work is common.
