America artist focused on beauty rather than painting wealth

Pop art is also different because it is based on Americas culture vs other countries culture

Zimbabwean art includes decorative esthetics applied to many aspects of life; such as Utilitarian objects, objects used for religion purposes, warfare, in propaganda, and many other places.
Themes are largely from African folklore and transformed into figurative, semi abstract, and minimalist works. They use a variety of materials such as stone. More specifically, black serpentine.
Wildlife painters
Decoration of the body impermanent ways such as scarification or tattoo.

Shona Sculptures: These sculptors have managed to influence a new generation of artists, through lengthy apprenticeships with master sculptors.
When they get a new house or for a time of celebration (for a wedding or birth of a child) they finger paint their house with ranges of vibrant colors.
Walking sticks: sticks are used in traditional tribal dances to symbolize clubs thrown in war. They are also important for religious beliefs; as they are supposed to hold ancestral spirits. Favorite design is magic ball, which is used by the Batonka tribe as a guard against evil spirits.
Beads are also apart of the celebration for being vibrant and to add color since tribal celebrations are big events.
Major Event
Zimbabwe's ambassador to Sengal has vowed to seek to extend the Senegalo-Zimbabwean annual arts exhibition to other parts of the country in a bid to discourage illegal migration. She recently talked about this to inform youth about the dangers of illegal migration. She hopes that spreading art exhibits it would spark the youth's interest into staying in Zimbabwe and not to migrate out. Not only she had said to expand art exhibits but she also recognized groups of important to try and inspire the youth. One of the people was the oldest sculptor named AmaliMaloia.
Art is important in Zimbabwe because it allows people to be creative and to visualize goals. Most paintings are based on folklore and therefore they try to create a lesson and to help get a better understanding on life.

Art in Zimbabwe is impacting the country by making it wealthier. They use this wealth to teach and to educate people. Art does this by inspiring people to create and use it as motivation for money. It also helps them get through tough times.
