Powered by African Artists Since 1968


We come from very simple and humble beginnings. We started a small studio in Dar es Salaam, the capital city of Tanzania back in 1968. Our primary audience was foreigners and tourists who would visit us physically at the studio. But our vision was always ambitious. We always aimed to create and grow a world-class African art brand in our society and to be able to reach audiences all over the world. We aspired to create and paint unique paintings that look gorgeous! Today our style of paintings is regarded as the most popular and ubiquitous style on the continent with customers all over the world!

All our African paintings for sale online are individually handcrafted with durable canvases, the highest quality oil & acyclic paints and all are shipped in recyclable packaging materials directly from our gallery. Our materials are locally sourced and all our artists are all indigenous, making our style of art a truly proud African product!

Ethical approach to making a difference


Africa has one of the largest visual arts creative industries in the world with home to hundreds of talented and diligent native artists having a prominent role in its cultural life. As the largest online African art gallery on the continent, we are committed to creating monetizable products that have positive impacts, not just to our customers and families, but on the quality of life of our community!

Our local artists are our most important asset, and we are dedicated to providing the necessary patronage and support that they need to thrive and succeed back here at home. We empower our artists and their families to break the cycle of poverty by breaking barriers and providing job opportunities and access to education, healthcare, greater prosperity, well-being and financial inclusion! Our positive and constructive impact is therefore felt across the community we live in! We reimagine how the lives of the people in our community could be elevated by deploying their artisan talents into making incredible African paintings that would delight people around the world!

Transforming communities in Africa!


Since the inception of our African art studio, we have been dedicated to employing the most highly marginalized and vulnerable in our communities or those thought to be unemployable. We recognize the depth of wealth of natural and cultural resources existing closer to home and it is with this ethos that we are able to make it possible to deploy local resources and human capital to create products that are handcrafted by our people and appreciated globally! Our innovative approach to painting and our ethical approach to labour also means that our artisans are paid fairly allowing them better access to opportunities and making them more financially inclusive in the society!

We are dedicated to improving the livelihood of our artisans that reside in our communities and making them more financially inclusive and productive. Our mission is therefore transformative using innovative solutions! Our goal is to cut out the middleman and get money directly into the hands of our artisans. As there is no middleman along our value chain, we are able to maximize profits which in turn means more and better paying jobs is created for the community and more foreign exchange is netted for the country!

Our objective is to make contemporary and modern African art accessible to everyone globally by eliminating geographical, financial, or psychological barriers!
