We are a team of passionate people whose aim is to promote and sell online arts objects of African artisans. We have partnered with touts, artisans and vendors in Black Africa countries who offer us beautiful arts objects that we sell on our website. Each piece of art is carefully selected in artisan's stores according to the criteria of originality.
Who is beyind this website?
I am a telecommunications engineer living for over 5 years in Dakar/Senegal, where I got my higher technical diploma in computing and an engineering degree in telecommunications at the multinational high school in telecommunications in Dakar/Senegal. In recent months, I move from Senegal, Guinea Bissau and the Gambia. My professional profile can be found on this page.
I am a lover of the arts. I can imagine the reader that you are say that it can only be African art?? Well no, I love all types of art as you can see through my pinterest profile, especially paintings, contemporary and antiques sculptures. It is only recently that I am passionate about African art through friends vendors that i met in Senegal. The originality and mystery around the African works have fascinated me and this is why i am behind this site, one year later, to promote the works of artisans and defend our African culture on the international scene. I also love computers, music, movies and everything that's funny. My facebook page is: Kamelbook (I only accept as friends people that I know!).
Why Art D'Afrique?
The idea of creating this shop came to me across vendors of art objects met in Senegal who had difficulties in selling their works due to poor visibility. So they asked me to create a virtual shop on which they can sell their crafts locally and internationally. Subsequently, we accepted the artisans/vendors from other countries in the shop.
When the website was created?
The website was tested since November 2011 and was officially launched in April 2012.
What we sell?
We sell African art objects such as ancient and modern sculptures, paintings, African masks and musical instruments, clothes, shoes, pendants, necklaces, etc...
What are our advantages over our competitors?
Our pre and after sales services is excellent allowing customers to purchase the art objects in the best conditions and more, during the buying process through delivering, they are informed step by step of the processing of their orders. Our artifacts are in high quality and most important we do not export the art objects in other countries for resale. The art objects on this site are sold directly from the stores/shops of artisans or sellers. And the most important, we love art and we love our job.
Even if it is not so visible in our shop, the social aspect is very important to us and will be the media the most used to communicate with our buyers and artisans. So feel free to follow us through our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ fan page.
