This is the second order I have placed with True African Art. The previous order was several years ago. This time, the items I ordered got delayed due to the Post Office's inaction. True African Art went above and beyond to solve this problem that was not their fault. I am very pleased with their willingness and ability that got my order from the Post Office to my house in time for the Holidays. I recommend them highly. Thank you Gathinja and team!
Lesley from Scotland
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 have purchased 2 paintings from True African Art & have been pleased beyond words. Gathinja has been diligent in returning calls (we have a 3 hour time delay) & 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. You gaze at the scenes & you are transported by the artist talent to the villages & plains. Please help these artists to continue sharing their talents by purchasing their works. You will NOT be disappointed.
Camille from the United Kingdom
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!
Darrell from Texas, USA
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 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.
What Artists have to say about our sponsorship.
Gathinja Yamokoski, Owner
I was born & raised in Kenya, East Africa. Serving you, our clients, and the 75 artists that have been featured here on True African Art .com has been the privilege of a lifetime.
I have lived in the USA since 2002. I live north of New York City in Westchester County with my husband of 16 years and our 4 year old Son. I go back to Africa almost every year to visit my artists, family, and friends. In 2014, I chose to be a United States citizen.
As we do in Africa, a warm welcome to you and contact us anytime!
