Aritsans at Tinga Tinga Arts Cooperative Society produce the popular and unique art style known as Tinga Tinga paintings, predominantly portraying the rich culture and tradition of Tanzania.

Edward Tingatinga died in 1972, leaving behind a continued art style legacy when in 1990 the family of Edward registered Tinga Tinga Arts Cooperative Society (TACS).
