AmfestExpo2018 Visual Arts Day Producer: Kokwe Yebovi
For as long as time itself has existed, the continent of Africa has been a visual artist’s dream. From the vibrant and lush forests of West Africa, to the scenic majestic mountains of the East, to the golden sands of the Sahara to the north. It is therefore no surprise that all the various cultures which call the continent home have developed cultural practices that draw people from across the world to visit the continent for its visual experience. In modern times also, the various aspects of visual arts have come to find a home in Africa.
With African visual Arts now in high demand all over the world, there is a need for African, particularly Nigerian visual arts creatives to take advantage of this interest in their work and to make it a profitable industry. Visual Arts creatives are thus invited to Amfest Expo 2018 Visual Arts Day. The event is designed to help visual Arts creatives to learn how to leverage on opportunities to expose their work to an international audience. The AmfestExpo 2018 Visual Arts day will be produced by Kokwe Yebovi.
