How the Website Started

The website is managed by Daniel Augusta. Daniel was born in the former Czechoslovakia, now Czech Republic. After studying at Chalmers University in Sweden, he traveled extensively through the African continent where he fell in love with the colorful and vibrant paintings called Tinga Tinga. It was in 2005.

He brought few of them to friends in Europe who were very impressed. It didn't take a long time before Daniel set up art agency called Afrum which organized exhibitions and presented the Tinga Tinga painters through his first website Now the year was 2007.

Only a year later in 2008, the started. But it was just set up in order to show new found paintings in Tanzania to some eager collectors. They were just about 5 people!

Since then has grown. Within 6 years, 9 versions of the website were published. And each time, the website was better and better as the programming skills advanced. More than 700 customers were served and about 10.000 paintings presented and many of them sold.

Tinga Tinga in central Europe

We are in the process to build a Tinga Tinga center in Europe in order to be closer to our European customers. If you need paintings for an exhibition then we can reach most European cities within one day. See the distance map below. The center is situated 2 hours from Prague (Czech Republic) and just 5 minutes from the Zoo Dvur Kralove which made international headlines in 2017 when the Zoo dehorned its population of rhinos.
