modernafricanart is an idea created by Lande Anjous-Zygmunt & Peter Zygmunt. The idea was initiated after a family visit to Nigeria in 2004. During our stay in Nigeria, in addition to many gallery and museum visits, we had the opportunity to meet some of the top artists on the Nigerian scene. We also had the privilege to see many artworks that are not readily available to the public. We were very impressed by the dynamism, diversity of style and impact these artworks rendered.
In general, these artworks have one thing in common which is distinctively African; they are exciting with a warm and vibrant interplay of colours.
Our vision is to share and spread the joy and sheer delight of contemporary African art. The vitality of Africa’s great culture and tradition combined with a modern approach result in unique art pieces.
It is our aim to showcase the artworks of the best artists across the continent. The artworks reflect a variety of styles from up-and-coming, established and master artists.
Our vision is carried out in two ways:
- Commercial platform; to sell the artworks to individuals, private and public organisations.
- Cultural platform; to promote and advance contemporary African art and its appreciation through cross cultural/exchange workshops, lectures, art forums and programmes.
