Footnotes

  • Malangatana's style is characterized by its dramatic figures and flamboyant yet restrained use of colour, and by its highly symbolic social and political commentary on everything from colonialism and war to peacetime rebuilding and the universality of the human experience. In addition to his paintings, murals, sculptures and ceramics, Malangatana has also left his mark on Mozambican cultural life by playing a founding role in the establishment of the Museu Nacional de Arte and the Nùcleo de Arte and setting up the Centro Cultural de Matalana.
