I haven't focused on my African sistas "doing it"in the sculpture world in a minute.
Mwandale Mwanyekwa is a great female tanzanian sculptor in a mainly male dominated art sector.
"Big Mama "as she likes to be called has been expressing herself through this art form for the past + 10 years. As any intelligent professional, she realized quite early that she had to aquire training. She attended several local and international schools, workshops, exhibits.
She was invited to showcase her work in Sweden, Toledo Ohio, South Africa ect
This stylish woman and mother, is a self proclaimed lover of herself, it shows through her self portraits carved in woods. She also takes her inspirations from her personal beliefs, nature, animals ect.
Here's her personal site:
Djaa my Tanzanian sistas sont trop dedans:)
