Key Details: The Gallery of African Art (GAFRA) will be showing this month “The Spirit of Makonde”, an exhibition of works by Tanzanian artist George Lilanga. Featuring early etchings, paintings and sculptures, this exhibition provides audiences with a rich body of work to view. George Lilanga started his career as a carver in 1961 in the coastal region of Lindi in Tanzania. By 1973, Lilanga had moved to Dar-es-Salaam to study at the newly founded Nyumba ya Sanaa cultural centre. Five years later, Lilanga was participating in his first international exhibition to critical acclaim. The Washington Post review compared Lilanga’s works to the French painter and sculptor Jean Dubuffet.
