Abstract: Tingatinga has been categorized as ‘tourist art’ for decades, however so far there has been little attention on the actual influence of the tourist group on Tingatinga. By using the theory of dialogism, this research looks into the interactions between the producers and clients of Tingatinga, and summarizes its development as tourist art as a cycle of souvenirization, mass-production and customization.
