For too long, African Artists' paintings have been exploited. As Africans ourselves, we are here to change this.

We buy directly from Artists born and raised in Africa, often at prices they command.

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 and instant! The outcome of the complete transaction was extremely good.


I just opened the package containing my Kimbo Batik. It is beautiful! Thank you for presenting African artists through social media. I appreciate receiveing the Batik within 2 days of purchase. Thank you for your timeliness and professionalism. I purchased another Kimbo today after seeing the one that I first ordered!

I recently discovered True African Art on the Internet and have since purchased a number of custom, beautiful paintings by Appiah Ntiaw, with which I am delighted. The service I have received from Gathinja has been truly exceptional and I would happily recommend her online gallery.

I absolutely love the print I purchased from True African Art. Once my purchase was made I got an email instantly and arrangements were made for my delivery. The artist Abdul Badi, who happens to live near me in Brooklyn, personally delivered and hung my print for me. This customer service goes beyond anything I've ever experienced. I highly recommend this website for art purchases. The prices, the selection, the customer service and professionalism is at its best.


 I highly recommend True African Art for not only the wonderful African art offered through their website, 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.


Hi Gathinja, I just got home early and opened my painting from Simon Muriithi.... It is sooooo beautiful. Thank you so much for my first original painting!
