Tinga Tinga (born Edward Said) started painting in Tanzania in 1950. A Makonde by tribe, his unique stylized bird and animal painting were soon copied by other artists in Tanzania (S.G Mpata, Mruta and Sky Issa) in what came to be known as the Tinga Tinga style of art, whose works were collected by Mr. and Mrs. Murumbi in the 1960s. Tinga Tinga died in 1972.
