"Majeshi" lives in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, East Africa, a community vibrant with African art painters, including the internationally operating Tingatinga Cooperative.

Like many of our new African artists, Majeshi is overflowing with a talent in art, even in his early forties.  But not only in Black African artwork, Majeshi also excels in computer graphic design, theatre, poetry, and interior design. These talents lead him to be active in several extra curricular activities and workshops involving African painting, charity groups for homeless children, plus environmental and service activities. 

Tanzanian African artist, MajeshiMajeshi says, "I get the most benefit from the people that I meet and learn from in these venues. I learn to work as a team with other people, which is something that is very important in a struggling economy that we have here in Tanzania. Learning to work as a team provides the support and resources one cannot obtain had they been working alone. Not only is emotional and social support gained from these groups, but I also learn new art skills in some of the workshops I attend, where we show each other our different styles. This is something that is very beneficial to learn as an African artist."

We asked Majeshi about his African paintings unique style of paper thin figures who bend. He responded by telling us that he has a friend who is a welder. "Whenever I went to his workshop, I saw him flattening things. I tried doing the welding myself and I succeeded. I loved the style and thus made my figures in my African art paintings thin, like they were welded. It was a fascinating discovery for my contemporary African art."

A confident, but humble man, Majeshi knows what he wants. His Father, who sadly passed away, gave Majeshi the means to start painting some years ago by giving him money for art supplies. Majeshi told us, "I will always remember my Father for that, for without him, I would not be painting now. Making African paintings is great source of income for me." 

Coming from a large family, Majeshi is the second youngest sibling, but he lives in Dar es Salaam, so much is expected of him from his family in terms of resources and establishing a bountiful lifestyle. "My siblings depend on me, even though I am not the oldest, but because I live in town, much is expected of me. The others live in the village so they depend on what I can find for them here." Majeshi has been married for 15 years now and has one daughter.

"My life is art," Majeshi says. Without it, my life would not be in a good position. I'm living through the art. I was able to buy land through it. For me, there is no life without art. It has made me to live. God chose me to be an artist, I cannot deny God's education. I am obeying God's love for me to be an artist. That is why I paint."

Majeshi is one our many artists who are great at what they do. They recognize their gift and are eager to do even more.
