The Artist

About Me

Masoud Kibwana

title-line

Masoud Kibwana (b. 1988) is a painter from Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania where he lives and works. Kibwana received training as an artist from the Dar Youth Art (DYA) Vocational Training Center in 2010 and worked under the mentorship of renowned Tanzanian painter, Max Kamundi.

 

Through a seamless blend of cubism and African figurative paintings on abstract backdrops, Kibwana’s paintings on canvas capture the beauty, culture and traditions of the Tanzanian and East African people. His meticulous attention to detail gives life and depth to the subjects in his work. Incorporated in his art are the intricate tribal patterns that can still be seen tattooed into the faces of the Makonde people of Tanzania and Mozambique.  His work is characterised by movement, intertwining of subjects and colour combinations not immediately identified as African.  The detailed 3D applications along the edges of the paintings, usually with white detail, give his paintings an interesting aspect. Kibwana hopes his work bring to light a dialogue regarding the challenges that have hampered or delayed development and sustainable in the Tanzania community and even a broader look at African societies in general
