Hans Poppe is a Tanzanian born, Toronto, Canada based artist and graphic designer. His recent body of work “Fabric of Tanzania” uses the colourful patterned kitenge (East African fabric), stretched over wood panel as the foundation for his oil paintings exploring African identity.
In Hans’ words, “The energy, aesthetic, tapestry and technique of my work are an exploration of everyday Africans, or Tanzanians to be specific. These paintings show the real life of Tanzanians, the unapologetic day to day life.”
