INVITATION FOR THE MASTERS

Africa has a rich artistic tradition, with artists whose work rivals the great masters of European art. Yet the assumption may still prevail that African art is the product of “tribal workshops,” guided by neither genuine aesthetic principles nor independent artistic sensibilities.

'THE MASTERS' category on ARTMAZON.com aims to correct this oversight with a comprehensive listing of the most significant collections from Master Artists of Nigerian origin and their counterparts from other African countries and in the diaspora.

If you think a particular Artwork should be listed in this section, please email us to add the ArtWork. Email: [email protected]
