Mwamba Mulangala - Artist of the Month

Mwamba Mulangala was the recipient of the Henry Tayali Award for Best Two-Dimensional Artist in Zambia in 1999 and holds the record of being the youngest visual artist to ever win this national award at the age of 23. Mwamba’s artwork is based on a personal inquiry into his society including the rights and responsibilities in the struggles of people to survive and thrive in communities and the relationships within and between them. The German Embassy proudly presents him as the “Artist of the Month” in April 2015.
