Diana Kamara and Gadi Ramadhani
Artist and Freelance Curator
Born and raised in Dar es Salaam; Diana is a poet and painter. Her earlier work was heavily influenced by Evarist Chikawe, her first art teacher. Through her first and second degrees of Fine Art from the University of Dar es Salaam her work is enlightened by African textiles. Diana’s work revolves around her own reflections of personal and public politics of gender, class and identity which twist and bite us all the time. Until 2014, she was just a painter. Her recent residences have opened doors to work with new media such as installation and video art.
