DescriptionJanuary 18 to 24: The exhibition will showcase the latest work by Mshana, Juma, Rashid and Kipara Mzuguno, the four painter sons of the late Tanzanian master Tingatinga painter David Mzuguno. One who visits a Mzuguno brothers' exhibition enters a magic world of blue elephants and green giraffes roaming through Eden's garden, traditional African villages hidden in tropical jungles and its inhabitants living their peaceful lives in perfect symbiosis with their natural surroundings. Each single Mzuguno piece is a mad, abundant celebration of bio-diversity and electrifying natural energy, a refined artistic ode to the universal thirst for life and an embracement of pure naive joy. It is as if a divine creative whirlwind has guided the Mzuguno brothers' brush over the canvass in order to visualize for us mortals the fresh primordial energy beaming straight from the inner depths of mother earth and the brothers' being. All paintings have been created during the last six months and exclusively for this KAUST Mzuguno-Tingatinga exhibition.
