Your Search For Premium African Art Is Finally Over!

Jambo! And, welcome to the fascinating world of African art!

We are an African family brimming with excitement about Africa’s finest artifacts.

And, we are delighted to share this passion with the world, straight from our home here in sunny Africa.

One cannot resist the lure of Africa.

Rudyard Kipling
British Poet, Short-story Writer and Novelist

We are privileged to have been born on this incredibly beautiful and diverse continent.

And we are on a mission to share our rich heritage with you.

What Sets Us Apart?

Four things differentiate us from other online art stores:

  1. We specialize in African art. We don't know anything about Arabian art or American-Indian art so we don't sell it here
  2. We only deal in premium artwork—only the crème de la crème. As such, we place a huge emphasis on quality rather than quantity. If only one piece makes the grade on a particular theme, we'll showcase only that piece without any qualms
  3. We personally scrutinize each artwork before we buy it—for its Africanness, craftsmanship and quality of the material used to ensure that you get value for your money. 
  4. We personally oversee the fulfilment process from packaging, shipping and returns. We don't delegate this crucial task to the artists.

The Riveting Spectrum of African Art

Because of its sheer heterogeneity and crosscutting nature, compartmentalizing African art is a pretty arduous task. 

In a very broad sense though, here are some of the art categories you can expect to experience here:

  • Artwork Era. Our art collection runs the gamut from the ancient to the contemporary.
  • African peoples of all walks of life from royalty, warriors, tribal men and women, boys and girls. 
  • Iconic African wildlife art with everything from the Big Five to some less known, but critically endangered species.
  • Africa boasts several stunning landscapes that consist of tropical savannas, snow-capped mountains, trees & forests, the Great Rift Valley, waterbodies and, deserts. Plus, the magic of the African sky and some stunning silhouettes!
  • Partial to a particular medium? Check out our canvas, paper, wood, fabric, tapestry, metal, ceramics art, and beadwork.
  • Our art categories by region: East Africa, Central Africa, Southern Africa, West Africa, North Africa or Pan African art—a blend of influences from the "five" corners of the continent. 
  • Realism, abstract art and semi-abstract African art whose nuances cater to different tastes.

Only Handpicked Masterpieces Here

You can select the showcased African artworks in the assurance that each piece has been…

Ancient stool from Congo. The stool is intricately carved from wood. Instead of legs, a bare-chested African woman with hands raised keeps the seat elevated.

Handpicked by incredibly discerning connoisseurs (namely; yours truly!).

So no trinkets here. 

No cheap knockoffs. 

No rhino carving which looks like a crossbreed between an aardvark and a giraffe. 

No, not here.

If it's not good enough, we will not stock it.


So our artworks boast outstanding workmanship by masters in their fields even though many have never been to formal art school.

Is it any wonder that African art had a huuuuge creative influence on Pablo Picasso?

Fair Trade In Your Hands

Moreover, our eclectic art collection promotes fair trade by… 

Creating gainful employment opportunities for Africa's:

  • masters who cannot effectively market their artwork to a yearning global audience
  • "unsung" artists
  • incredibly talented, budding artists
  • women groups and marginalized communities around the continent whose dexterity at handiwork is itself an art form. 

Obviously, their products still have to pass our stringent quality tests and standards.
