Why Choose Us

Enjoy Art!   Enjoy Africa!

Who We Are:

True African Art .com is the premier online African art gallery store that focuses on original, one of a kind, contemporary African paintings and their prints.

I own most of our artworks, having them sent to me or visiting our beloved artists personally whenever I am in Africa. So I have them here with me in New York. I've sent African artworks all over the world, and with no shipping cost to you, shipping is free worldwide on most of our paintings.

I staff Kenyans who operate on site in Africa. They stay abreast of the African art scene and work with our already posted African artists, acquiring paintings from them and sending them to me in the USA when I am not in Africa.

Where do your paintings come from?

We buy most of our paintings from African artists themselves inside the continent of Africa. As of March, 2016 we have 70 + painters on our site. Many of our paintings come from Kenya and Ghana but we also have African artworks from Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, the Congo and South Africa. You can see us with some of our African artist painters in videos and pictures throughout the site.
