ARLINDO MAUNDE - PINTURA - MOÇAMBIQUE
ArlindoMaunde was born in Mozambican in 1969 and lives in Johannesburg since 1988.
Self-thought artist, he started appreciating art at a tender age, and since growing without artworks in his own house, was captivated by what he saw in other people’s houses – thus, the interest in making art started taking place.
During his childhood, on his way to school, he used to pass through MalangatanaNgwenha’s house (one of the well-known Mozambican artists)who someway inspired him the most.
Arlindo during his art career explored different medium, techniques and subjects, having explored the most pallet knife and some delicate brush strokes on canvas doing portraits and wildlife as subjects.
Recently he found other interesting ways in doing his work, one of which, the rough textures in his recent portraitsadding to them a unique sense of what he calls “the strokes of life” – “one needs to come out of comfort zone to realize the power within”. He said. Oil and Acrylic on canvas has been always his favourite.
He has featured in many group exhibitions in South Africa and abroad, and his works has been bought by many collectors and art lovers around the globe.
