About Us

“An African Art Affair was born to give voice and a presence to young talented artists, living in Africa, on the international art scene, bringing awareness and insight.

Arts exert a never-ending influence, ghostly for some, heavenly for others, but very much at the heart of a reality that is constantly splitting itself in two, ever more virtual and ever more enamored with visions for which art is the ultimate refuge, the outsized echo chamber.

Art is about nurturing a world all of your own, a better one.

We believe that artists expressing issues in new ways can inspire us to reach out across cultures reconnecting us to our senses to re-imagine our lives in a better world, supporting each other.”

Monica Cembrola, Founder
