Africa's artistic landscape is immensely fertile. It has emerged from its colonial past, and is once again asserting its own identity. It is not only confined to the continent itself, but has spread throughout the world through the work of both those descended from the enforced migrations of the slave trade and also those who have more recently left their homes in Africa to take their place on an international stage.This book brings together 70 of Africa's most creative contemporary artists. Drawn from across the African continent as well as from Europe, North America, the Caribbean, and South America, the book illustrates the diversity and vitality of these artists, bringing it leaping off the page with over 350 colour images (many especially commissioned). In addition to painters, sculptors and photographers, there are a number of artists whose work embraces performance and installation. Many of the materials they use are as unorthodox as their imagery, with ready made and found objects.
