Tanzanian Painter Creates Striking Portraits Of Women

Tanzanian-born artist Sungi Mlengeya’s passion for art sparked at a very young age, at their home in Serengeti where she and her sister would go through the craft pages of their mother’s Woman’s Value magazines looking for something interesting to make. Living inside a national park with electricity only available in the evenings, they would spend all day cutting paper and making crafts in their designated former storage room turned craft room.

Painting mainly with acrylic, she finds inspiration in photographs and shares both her personal and borrowed experiences through her artworks. A lot of her paintings focus on women. “I focus on women as representatives of their societies, since throughout history; the central role of women as life bearers, nurturers, caretakers and educators has ensured the stability of their communities,” she explains.
