The richness of art from the African continent is a testament to the diverse culture, traditions, natural landscapes and history that it encompasses. African art paintings, and especially traditional ones, often depict any or all of these themes, using vivid colors and vivacious brush strokes to capture the true essence of Africa. Even contemporary and modern African art exude a spirit that is quite undeniably characteristic of this exquisite continent.
It is common to find that art from Africa favors abstract representation over naturalistic portrayal of its subject. Tribal art sees the Maasai figures, their bodies artistically illustrated in abstract forms, while nature art of the continent often colors the landscape in imaginative ways, using stronger hues rather than detail to pick out imagery. Contemporary African art relies on visually aesthetic abstraction to create an atmosphere of this sensual world.
Enchanted by the savannas that spread across East Africa, many artists have devoted their skills to encapsulating the long, lion-colored grass and the lone trees that stand stark against the red sunset. Along with this comes African wildlife art, which is one of the strongest and most traditional features of these paintings. Elephants, giraffes, flamingos and lions are among the most fascinating to the traveler looking to explore the hidden enthralls of the continent or to the painter eager to express them.
Use African art to decorate your walls if you want to transform your living space. Guaranteed to enhance the look or feel of any room with their vibrant imagery and flamboyant colors, these canvases will transport you to another world and another culture. Hang them in your hallway, living room, dining room or even stairway for family and visitors to appreciate and to add a touch of Africa to your home.
