Mchopa's Inspiration

Despite being only one of many tribes indigenous to modern-day Tanzania, the Masai are culturally iconic in East Africa. Their heritage imbues East Africa in an aesthetic that is uniquely Masai, and an aesthetic that drives the art of Gregory Mchopa.

Mchopa captures the vibrance and energy of Masai culture through the use of bold strokes, and striking color. Mchopa lines tell the stories of Masai culture through distinct parts of their lives. From music and dance to cooking to family, Mchopa's lines offer a diverse snapshot of Masai life on oil and canvas.
