Gathinja Yamokoski, Owner
Welcome to our online "Village" here on True African Art .com.
I own this online gallery and am one of its dozens of artists. Having been born & raised in Kenya, East Africa, I have lived in the USA since 2002, just north of New York City, in Westchester County. My husband of 16 years and I have a very lovable five year old Son. I go back to Africa almost every year to visit my artists, family, and friends. In 2014, it was an honor for me to become a United States citizen.
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.
As we do in Africa, a very warm welcome to you! We want you to own a piece of art from us. If there is anything I can do to assist in your choices and decisions, please feel free to contact me anytime.

What Artists have said about us
WHAT YOU HAVE SAID ABOUT US
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!

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.

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.
Our Climb to the Top - A Brief History
Starting in 2004 and running through 2008, we were hired by Inside African Art to manage the site while its owner, Todd, was in Kenya working for an NGO. We first got connected because I knew Todd's wife in Kenya.
When his contract expired, Todd returned to the United States. Naturally, he could again handle the site on his own and noting our excellent work in his absence, he strongly encouraged us in writing to open up our own website, which we did just before 2010.
Since being on our own online we have sold over 4,000 original paintings from 75 different artists in 12 African countries.

We thank you for loving art and the culture of Africa. The communities there are not always perceived by the common visitor, but reveal themselves to those who seek out true friendship with its citizens and have had the chance to live there for many years.
