Born in New York to Malawi and Barbados parents, Mtendere Mandowa (AKA Teebs) is an electronic musician and artist living in Los Angeles. His melodies, multi-layered and coupled with raw emotions, form a serene and honest sound, which is so unique and yet so simple. As a painter, Mtendere uses an array of luminous colour schemes and illustrative techniques that reflect his personality. Mtendere’s artworks act as a palette or invitation to discover a journey between the music and the visual. His work transmutes an energy that flows between his canvas and musical instruments, resonating a unique harmony of lines, colours and sounds.
