Mindelo Shopping: 1 reviews and 5 photos
Tchâle Figueira is Cape Verde's best known artist. He is a painter, sculptor, musician and writer. He has a his atelier in Mindelo at the beachfront (ask anyone for directions, he's very well known). Here you see some of his artwork exposed and you may also have the chance to chat with the artist who's multiligual (has lived in Switzerland for many years). He's certainly someone with a strong opinion and an interesting life story. His colorful art is accessible even to someone who's less of an art background. In case you speak Portuguese you might also want to buy one of his novels (e.g. Solitário). They are exclusively available in Mindelo bookshops. In 2006 Tchâle also appeared as a musician at the Baia das Gatas festival.
