Thobias Minzi was born in Tanzania in 1984.
Art is part of my daily life; I have expressed myself through the art of painting. Creating art took me into a world of my own, and the encouragement I received led to further training and explorations. Through several workshops, informal training, advice from friends, and self imagination I found my stylistic way of depicting life in its various aspects. This was realized after six years, as I discovered fabric as an actual medium for creativity.
I enjoy using fabric and thread to convey an image or a feeling. The tactile nature adds a lot to the creative art, especially in my abstract arts.
My main themes have been African life, women and children.
Why women and children?
This is due to the great role they play in African life, and the great challenges they go through, especially in developing countries.
I hope my art brings knowledge and inspiration to others, as I continue along my path of a creative career.
