Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong and only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

I will be away from the gallery between July 10th and July 19th, and so will not be shipping or open for visitors at the gallery. The Indigo Arts website will be active as always. I will respond to emails as soon as possible. I will be able to ship orders after July 19th, 2024.

Simon G. Mpata

About the Artist

The youngest (half) brother of E. S. Tingatinga (of the same mother but a different father), Mpata learned to paint from his illustrious brother , and without a doubt is the artist who kept his style the closest to Tingatinga's. Upon Tingatinga's death he demonstrated his uncompromised fidelity to his late brother's will by refusing to train numerous new Tingatinga recruits and preferred to leave Tanzania and open his studio in Nairobi. where he died in 1984, aged 42.
