I have purchased 2 paintings from True African Art & have been pleased beyond words. Gathinja has been diligent in returning calls & worked hard to get the paintings that I wished delivered in a safe & timely fashion. The paintings are a true representation of the Africa that my husbands family comes from. Please share these artists' talents by purchasing their works. You will not be disappointed.


I just ordered several pieces from True African Art at the start of 2021, ranging from a canvas painting to some small greeting cards. They are all fabulous! The quality of the work is great, and I was especially impressed with the customer service and communication from Gathinja. All of my paintings arrived safely and quickly.


I highly recommend True African Art for not only the wonderful African art, but more importantly, the exceptional personal service and support provided by Gathinja.  You can purchase from True African Art with complete confidence. They are professionals who care about the wonderful artists they represent and their clients.


The framed painting that we purchased for our CEO is absolutely stunning! We are thrilled with it. It was an honor to work with True African Art! Gathinja communicates on a regular basis, from questions to confirming we received shipment. Can't praise this site any more! Stunning works and a pleasure to do business with.


I lived in Kenya for a few years when I was younger and wanted to make sure my wife and I supported African artists.  We were so happy to find True African Art.  Our artwork shipped and arrived quickly and they look great!  Thank you for making African art accessible to us here in the States and around the world.


I had such an excellent experience from the very start with True African Art: from ordering my picture, to the regular progress updates on my custom Silk Thread Art. The delivery was very speedy internationally, and free!   Many thanks, I'll definitely be ordering more art!


I can wholeheartedly recommend purchasing from True African Art. The canvas I selected was exceptional, financial transaction easy, and the posting they did for the painting to be sent overseas was very quick. All of True African Art's communication was professional & instant! Their process is very good.
