Art and Culture in Zambia

The art, sculpture and craft industry are relatively well developed. Even though the number of artists is not very high Zambia has some well known artists including Enock Ilungu, Geoffrey Seti, Linda Chandia, Mulenga Chafilwa, Stephan Kapata, Sylvia Mwando, Victor Makashi and William Mikko. The sculpture industry in the country is predominantly dominated by Flinto Chandia and Friday Tembo who have definitely helped pioneer and carve a definite image for Zambian sculptures on the world wide market. In fact, the various museums in Zambia help illustrate the evolution of art and sculpture in Zambia. For anyone currently in Zambia, the following is a list of museums in Lusaka:
