African Artbeat aims to promote a range of talented artists who live and work in Africa.

Africa abounds with incredible talent, but many of these artists do not have the resources with which to promote themselves abroad. We at African Artbeat recognise that their art should be shared far and wide, and strive to introduce the unique, vibrant art of Africa to the world.
