Masoud Ibrahim Kibwana is an artist from the Nafasi Art Space in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Incorporated in his art are the intricate tribal patterns that can still be seen tattooed into the faces of the Makonde people of Tanzania and Mozambique.  His work is characterised by  movement, intertwining of subjects and colour combinations not immediately identified as African.  The detailed 3D applications along the edges of the paintings, usually with white detail, give his paintings an interesting aspect.  He dropped out of school in Form 2 (the equivalent of Year 9) as his family could not afford to support his education.   He paints vivid abstracts depicting aspects of daily life of communities such as the Masaai and Makonde.
