An Introduction from the Owner:
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.
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.
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.
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.

True African Art Makes a Difference
Some of our artists from Africa have a difficult time achieving their ambitions in the often poor economy of Africa. When you buy an original African painting through us, you are helping us to go back to the artist to buy more of their artworks, thus giving them an extra boost to keep painting, as well as enhancing the livelihood of their families. We buy most of our African art paintings directly from the artists. Check out our Guestbook to see what the artists themselves have said about how we have made a difference in their lives.
