African Art Beats will mark its soon-to-be 5th year with “Intertwined Narratives – A Retrospective Exhibit”, featuring artworks by 10 of the artists the gallery works with. These artists have much more than a continent in common. Although each one has a unique path, style, and set of skills, they all use their art to start a conversation, raise awareness and advocate for the common good. Through paint, natural pigments, repurposed material, or metal and all kinds of support – canvas, denim, burlap, wood – they convey their dedication to this planet and its people and advocate for social and environmental responsibility.

The artists featured are Bienvenue Fotso Gunsi (Cameroon), Méné, Pascal Konan, and Souleymane Konaté (Côte d’Ivoire), Gérard Gabayen and Saadio (Senegal), Camille Tété Azankpo and Yao Fofo Sewonou (Togo), Elizabeth Martineau and 3-D (Haïti).
