The artists of Bagamoyo have combined traditional influences with their understanding of tourist demands and the educations they have received through various training facilities in their town. The resulting art is appealing to tourists and art connoisseurs alike. Many scholars have ignored intensive study of tourist arts, disregarding the importance in identifying cultural exchange throughout history. Makonde art has a rich and successful tradition that illustrates colonial interactions. The success of those artists has a direct influence on works created by other artists. Including those who pride themselves in following Western aesthetic demands, those who are creating unique and expressive works.
Through a review of Makonde history, an overview of the importance of tourist art, and an introduction to artists and training facilities of Bagamoyo the ability of these artists to balance all elements is discussed.
