Matias Ntundo is a sculptor and graphic artist from Cabo Delgado in the north of Mozambique. He has chosen the traditional method of woodcut to comment on current political issues and the historical development of Africa. In expressive sceneries, Ntundo tells of colonialisation, Christianisation, war and violence. Ntundo is a member of the Makonde, an ethnic group that now lives in Tanzania and northern Mozambique. They are internationally recognised for their wood carving. Ancestor veneration, myths and legends, as well as everyday scenes, form the basis of the content. With his work, Ntundo continues the tradition of the Makonde and thus consciously ensures the preservation of cultural independence.
