I will be working out of state this week, and so will not be shipping or open for vistors at the gallery.   The Indigo Arts website will be active as always, I will respond to emails, and I will be able to ship orders after October 26th.

The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year and a half despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations.  I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Please note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!

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.
