                  WHO WE ARE:

My name is Gathinja Yamokoski and I am the owner of this website, True African Art, and one of its 75 African artists. I was born and raised in Kenya. In 2002, I moved to the United States to marry my African-American husband. I travel back to Africa almost every year to see my artists, family, and friends. When I cannot be in Africa, my consultant, Michael Kivindyo, keeps me abreast of the art scene. Thus, our staff is only from African descent and this helps us in communicating through the various cultures found within. I love humankind, philosophy, art, and anything Africa. In 2014, I became a USA citizen and the Mother of a beautiful boy. It is my pleasure to be of service to you.

           "LOYAL TO ARTISTS"

We give full & free promotion for chosen African artists through a model of The Fair Trade Principles that guide our communication & business with our artists. We have thus developed meaningful & trustworthy relationships with many of our artists & are glad to call them our friends. Most often we buy their artworks at prices they specify. For artists we know well, we provide small loans in exchange for their artworks acquired in the future.  See our Be on the Site Page to be considered!  We expect artists that paint for art's sake and not to make a quick buck.  The fact that we treat all our Artists under the same workflow & hospitiality has made us the trusted gallery throguhout Africa.

                "LOYAL TO YOU"

We curate each painting we put on the site, while still including works from our most popular artists. These inclusions give you the best selection to collect African art paintings. We ensure your satisfaction for the African paintings you buy from the moment you visit our website until you hang your African artwork in your home or office.  Many of our clients say that the paintings they receive look better in person than they did in thier online search!  Several of our artists make custom paintings based on a photo or past comparism you specify.  They have done this dozens of times.n   In our Guestbook, read others' reviews of our service & quality of art.

Does a painting's price not match what you may have in the bank? No problem! You can Make an Offer on any painting using our Contact Us Form. To request a custom price, base your offer on what the painting is worth to you versus its price online.  As long as your request is reasonable, we promise to consider it!

We also accept payment plans with 0% interest for up to one year.


Your complete satisfaction is our number one priority!  We value your business and look forward to serving all your decorative needs. You will find that we consistently provide to you a great value for our originals, plus a diverse variety.  We deal with you and your art quickly, but also personally and professionally.  The painting(s) you order will be mailed securely within 24 hours of receipt.  It takes about a week for your art to arrive within the USA & about two weeks internationally.


The people of Africa have a fascinating and exquisite culture that is somewhat secluded from even the best of our wondering eyes.  That's why our About section in our Menu above features exclusive and rare information given only to us directly from the source, our Artists inside Africa. Our media incudes text, photos, and videos.  May the expressions of the artists here bring you a little closer to the shroud, beauty, and intimate, welcoming message that is indeed, only Africa.


We know you have a choice online when it comes to buying original African paintings for sale. Unfortunately, some respond at only a leisurely pace and now get their retail paintings from galleries, not directly from the artists.  However, with us, we treat you, the artists and their creations right from start to finish. Trust us as your deciding factor for purchasing original African art paintings online. Read what just a tiny fraction of our client base has to say about us in our online Guestbook!
