Biography   George Lilanga


George Lilanga di Nyama, Tanzania (1934 - 2005)

George Lilanga was born in 1934 in Kikwetu Village  in southern Tanzania and passed away in June 2005. Like most Makonde youngsters, he learned to carve on soft cassava root; later he graduated to carving the hard black wood made famous by Makonde artists. He later came to Dar es Salaam where he joined a group of carvers. But his big break came when he was hired as a watchman at Nyumba ya Sanaa now called Nyerere Cultural Centre.

Cleverly, he took the opportunity to show his carvings to Sister Jean, one of the management staff, who recognized his talent and immediately changed his duties. He added drawing to his repertoire, producing work used on batiks, on murals on canvas   ...  Displaying 750 of 1931 characters.
