AFRICAN ARTISTS' PAINTINGS FOR SALE
Gathinja Yamokoski, Website Owner.
In Africa, poverty is overcome in the community’s relationships and underlying culture. I was born and raised in Kenya, East Africa for 25 years. I know what poverty looks like and how it can take its toll on the human soul.
In 2000, I met my now husband of 21 years inside Kenya, where he was volunteering, having just graduated from College.
I never imagined becoming a citizen of the USA, which I did in 2014, the same year our only child was born. I go back to Kenya almost yearly to visit with our artists, family, and friends.
In 2004, I managed another online website. In 2008 I tried to buy the company and the owner encouraged me to open my own online art gallery. True African Art has been open since 2009 and we've been the leading original African paintings online gallery to date.
We are legit, authentic, original, and truthful. We are True African Art.

Part of the Solution
For too long, African Artists' paintings have been exploited. As Africans ourselves, we are here to change this.
We live in a time where freedom, justice, and equality are abused in some parts of the world, including the United States of America.
Africans' have a 400 year history in America, from 1619 to today, most of the time under the bondage of slavery. Essentially, American History has become threaded by Black History.
To counter the foreign police of history, we hold an all African staff and deal directly with African artists born and raised in the Motherland. We buy their artwork at fair prices that the artists often determine with us. We pay them well, in full, and on time. And we pass the same treatment to you, whoever you are, wherever you are.
Our artists are truly thankful when they hear the news that their paintings are being enjoyed and living in another person's house, perhaps thousands of miles away. You did this! Thank you!
