Jambo na karibu! ("Hello and welcome!" in Swahili.) My name is Gathinja Yamokoski and I am the Founder and Owner of True African Art .com, an online based art gallery selling original, one of a kind, hand painted, contemporary African paintings, plus prints of available and sold original paintings.
I have lived in the suburbs of New York City since 2002, though I am originally from Kenya, East Africa. I travel back to visit Africa every year. I own most of the African artworks seen on this website and started distributing contemporary African paintings worldwide from my home in 2004.
Most of our Black African artworks are purchased directly from the African artists themselves inside Africa. We have pictures and videos of my African staff and I with many of our painters. You can view this media in the "Artist Info" menu of this website. Michael & Edwin mail to me African artists paintings when I am in the USA and assist me when I am in Africa.Many of our African paintings for sale are from Kenya, but we also collect from Cameroon Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal the Congo, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda. At 65 African artists, we represent the both established and emerging African artists.

The people of Africa have a fascinating and exquisite culture that is somewhat secluded from even the best of our wondering eyes. 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.
Our fondest wishes to you from the heart of Africa! ~ Gathinja, Michael & Edwin
