Aritsans at Tinga Tinga Arts Cooperative Society produce the popular and unique art style known as Tinga Tinga paintings, predominantly portraying the rich culture and tradition of Tanzania.

Established in 1968 by Edward Tingatinga, the Tanzanian artistan to first produce these vibrant paintings which became popular amoung Tanzanian expatriates. Edward Tingatinga died in 1972, leaving behind a continued art style legacy when in 1990 the family of Edward registered Tinga Tinga Arts Cooperative Society (TACS). TACS produce popular art products under the trade name Tinga Tingaâ„¢ and provide livelihoods for a myriad of painters.

Modern Tingatinga uses enamel paints on canvas incorporating bold, colourful and humorous designs with detailed compositions.
