Mamani Mamani is an Aymaran artist from Bolivia. His work is significant in its use of Aymaran indigenous tradition and symbols. His art has been exhibited around the world, including shows in Washington, D.C., Tokyo, Munich, and London.
Mamani Mamani's paintings draw upon his Aymaran heritage, and include colorfully stylized images of indigenous mothers, condors, suns, and moons, among other themes. Mamani Mamani uses strong vibrant colors similar to the colors featured in the traditional handmade blankets that are widely used by the indigenous people of the Bolivian Altiplano. His use of indigenous symbols is especially significant in the South American context where indigenous cultures have been viewed as inferior to European culture.
