African encounters Contemporary Modes of Expression
African encounters aim is to present the world-class fine art being produced by contemporary African artists to the world. Through contemporary African paintings, we provide our clients with a legitimate experience of contemporary African culture, without the jet lag.
Traditional art forms of Africa are universally known and have captured western imagination as the legitimate form of African expression.
As a culture evolves, it is shaped by history, social circumstance and interactions with other cultures. With this evolution, new modes of artistic expression emerge, rooted in the rich cultural heritage of tradition, but keenly conscious of all that has shaped present day identities and contemporary experience.
Our artists and their works are a product of this evolving culture and
through their works, our clients enjoy a refreshingly unique perspective of
life. In turn, we offer our artists a larger audience to whom they can express
their feelings, thoughts and social commentary, as well as the means to continue
their artistic expression.
