The African colours of the Tanzanian market place are flooding the walls of the Walcot Chapel Gallery at the moment.
The work of a young artist called Natasha Sweeting who was born to a Tanzanian mother and a British father in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania back in 1981.
While in school she developed an interest in portrait painting and was especially drawn to the untold stories behind people’s expressions and also the power of the gaze.
Natasha continued her artistic education here in the UK – studying at Loughborough and Goldsmiths Universities and the Kent Institute of Art and Design.
Returning to her homeland she continued to develop her skills and gained recognition for her work through various exhibitions – all covering the theme of the African identity through portraiture.
It’s this she brings to the Walcot Street exhibition now that she has moved to Bath with her Yorkshire born husband and young child.
The exhibition continues tomorrow – Saturday, October 21st.
