Just as with everything else that is worthy of celebration or commemoration, ‘Love’, the most complex yet revealing emotion ever, get to has its day too. Many artists over the years have continually drawn inspiration from the idea of love and expressed in their work.

Over the years, a buzz has gown around contemporary African art. International art galleries and auction houses have ventured into the sales of African art with certain names like Ben Enwonwu, El Anatsui, Yusuf Grillo, Njideka Akunyili headlining the news with their works recording breaking sales. More and more, the interest in African art is growing and so are new names being identified in the space.
