African Artists' Paintings for sale
WHAT WE ARE DOING FOR ARTISTS
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.
What we are doing about this here at True African Art is special. The past two years during Covid, we were able to fund over $50,000 worth of art from over 25 of our active artists chosen out of need, honesty, and talent.
We know the choices online when it comes to shopping for art. If you’re on the fence because of a price or who we are, please see the links below. We are legit, authentic, original, and True.

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. Considering Africans' 400 year history in the USA, this is not surprising to us.
To counter this ignorance, 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 determine with us. We pay them well, in full, and on time.
Consequentially, we have sold thousands of original paintings for over 100 African Artists in 13 African countries since 2009. This tangible method of encouragement brings to the artist's life the real value of freedom, justice, and equality. Read some of their testimonies below.

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 received Seleman Kubwimana's beautiful and authentic paintings today. I was overwhelmed with positive emotions and good gratitude when I opened them. Seleman poured his heart and soul into these beautiful paintings, and these three pieces: Rwatubyaye, Ikibasumba, and Gikundiro, channel the energy of Yemaya/Yemoja.. Thank you again for collaborating, arranging, and preparing the purchase of original African art.
I was incredibly pleased with the care, concern, service and the end product of my custom silk thread by the Yeboah artists. I was able to make changes as needed from the drafts to satisfy my wishes for color matching,... the process was a joy, the quality is incredible, the details are amazing, and the staff at True African Art are easy to work with. I would highly recommend True African Art, their name says it all, and I would use them again. Very happy Customer.
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.
