Embark on a journey to the captivating African savanna with the Savanna Sunsets quilting collection. Inspired by the renowned works of African artist Edward Saidi Tingatinga, these quilt blocks are a vibrant celebration of the exotic and whimsical art that has enchanted people around the world.
Edward Saidi Tingatinga's artistic style is instantly recognizable, characterized by surreal imagery and caricature-like illustrations of African animals. His unique approach to art captured the imagination of both tourists and locals, and his influence spread as he taught and inspired other artists in Tanzania.
In our Savanna Sunsets collection, we pay homage to Tingatinga's beautiful genre of art by replicating his distinct style in a quilting format. Each quilt block showcases the vivid illustrations of African animals, brought to life through embroidery and appliqué techniques. The designs exude a sense of playfulness and joy, reflecting the spirit of Tingatinga's artwork.
To enhance the visual impact of the quilt blocks, we have incorporated sunset-inspired fabrics in the background folds. These warm and rich hues create a mesmerizing backdrop for the embroidered and appliquéd designs, evoking the breathtaking beauty of a savanna sunset. The combination of Tingatinga's style and the sunset-inspired settings adds a touch of magic to each quilt block.
