Tinga Tinga Style Oil Painting Guinea Hens & Flamingos, Tanzania, East Africa
An original oil painting by a Tinga Tinga artist in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, East Africa. Signed by the artist: Stephan. Original Tinga Tinga paintings (from the early 1900s) were used to decorate the walls of huts. Pigments were natural and found in nature. The canvas of this original looks to be silk with a heavy base coating of white oil paint. The designs are painted – in oil – on the surface of this base coating.
The painting has been stretched on heavy duty wood bars but can be removed and rolled for shipping.
