FEATURED ARTISTS
Here are just a few artists where their Art & Sculptures are displayed at Namwandwe
Henry Tayali
One of Zambia's most famous and respected contemporary artists is the late Henry Tayali.
He worked in woodcuts and metal sculptures, but is best known for his paintings. His early works were representational, often busy street scenes of great fluidity and movement, but as his work developed it became more abstract, although still concerned with the themes of overcrowding, poverty and weariness. Critics described his work as ' crowded social realism ' and ' a voice for the people of Zambia, easily heard and recognised by all '.
  
Among his last work was a series of Storm paintings , some of which hang in the Namwandwe Gallery.
As well as enjoying a popular following among ordinary Zambians at home, Tayali's work is recognised and appreciated by art lovers all over the world. Putting his fame and international standing to good use, Tayali was a tireless promoter of Zambian art and artists, endlessly encouraging and inspiring others in their work.
Agnes Yombwe
Zambia's foremost female artist. Agnes Yombwe works mostly with natural materials and uses traditional ceramic, textile designs and indigenous craftworks such as gourds and bowls in her striking sculptures and paintings.
She has achieved some international recognition, and works hard to inspire other artists-especially women, who are woefully under-represented in galleries both in Zambia & overseas. For Yombwe this is as much a social issue as an artistic one, a deliberate move to raise the position of women in contemporary Zambian society.
Flinto Chandia
Flinto Chandia is a renowned Sculptor. His pieces are included in collections all over the world. Flinto began making sculptures at an early age – inspired by his mother, a traditional potter, and by his father’s carving of fishing canoes.

Flinto produces elegant stone and wood pieces which can be found at Namwandwe.
