African art
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search "African arts" redirects here. For the journal African Arts, see African Arts (journal) A bronze ceremonial vessel made around the 9th Century A.D., one of the bronzes found at Igbo Ukwu African art constitutes one of the most diverse legacies on earth. Though many casual observers tend to generalize "traditional" African art, the continent is full of people, societies, and civilizations, each with a unique visual special culture. The definition also includes the art of the African Diasporas , such as the art of African Americans . Despite this diversity, there are some unifying artistic themes when considering the totality of the visual culture from the continent of Africa.
  • Emphasis on the human figure: The human figure has always been the primary subject matter for most African art, and this emphasis even influenced certain European traditions. For example, in the fifteenth century Portugal traded with the Sapi culture near the Ivory Coast in West Africa, who created elaborate ivory saltcellars that were hybrids of African and European designs, most notably in the addition of the human figure (the human figure typically did not appear in Portuguese saltcellars). The human figure may symbolize the living or the dead, may reference chiefs, dancers, or various trades such as drummers or hunters, or even may be an anthropomorphic representation of a god or have other votive function. Another common theme is the inter-morphosis of human and animal.

Image:Makonde elephant.jpg Image:Velour du kasaï.jpg African art is any form of art or material culture that originates from the continent of Africa . This article discusses primarily visual art; for information on African music, see Music of Africa The arts and material culture of the African continent constitute one of the most diverse and innovative artistic legacies on the planet. Though many casual observers tend to generalize "traditional" African art, the continent is actually full of a multitude of peoples, societies, and civilizations, each with a unique visual culture. Despite this diversity, there does seem to be some unifying artistic themes when considering the totality of visual culture from the continent of Africa. Formal Innovation - Unlike "Western" societies, where artworks tend to be produced according to strict canons of representation, many African societies encourage innovation and creativity of both style and form among their artists. This innovation and diversity can be seen not only across long expanses of time and geography, but also even from village to village. Visual Abstraction - African artworks tend to favor visual abstraction over naturalistic representation. This is because many African artworks, regardless of medium, tend to

Yoruba bronze head sculpture, Ife, Nigeria c. twelfth century C.E. The arts of Africa constitute one of the most diverse legacies on earth. While many observers tend to generalize "traditional" African art, the continent is full of peoples, societies, and civilizations, each with a unique visual culture. From c. 6000 B.C.E. , rock drawings in Africa have included representations of animals and hunters. From the beginning of tribal differentiation, tribal art has become a way of isolating one tribe from another, and tribal art can take the form of scarification, (to create a design on the skin by means of shallow cuts that are sometimes rubbed with a colorant or irritant to enhance the resulting scar tissue), body painting, or sculptural masks used in religious ceremonies. Diversity also appears in separate geographical regions, where natural resources controlled the materials used, while tribal power, wealth , or sophistication was responsible for the type of objects produced.

African Art
The Carlos Museum's collection of African art offers valuable insight into African artistic expressions in the variety of their forms, functions, and cultures of origin. A majority of the objects come from the collection of William S. Arnett acquired by the museum in 1994. Arnett collected masks and carved figures from West and Central Africa, particularly the numerous cultures of Nigeria, Benin (formerly Dahomey), the Cameroon Grassfields, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Since 2003 the African collection has grown through select acquisitions and gifts to represent objects from East and Southern Africa, including textiles, ceramics, and jewelry.
Made from a variety of indigenous and imported materials, the objects in this collection bear evidence of uses in a variety of contexts, both religious and secular. There are figures from personal or family shrines, such as the Fon Asen Altar, complemented by those used in community shrines, such as the Urhobo Figure and the Ethiopian Processional Cross. There are examples of secular art, generally made to be seen in public to communicate ideas about status, wealth and identity, like the exquisite Beaded Bowl Figure from the Kom kingdom of the Cameroon Grassfields, used by royalty to hold kola nuts for their guests, and the Ndebele woman’s Beaded Cape from South Africa. The collection also includes a wide variety of masks like the Igbo Maiden Spirit Mask, danced in masquerades that carry religious and cultural significance for participants, including the audience. All these works demonstrate important aspects of the worldviews and aesthetic values of their cultures of origin.

Kathleen Berrin Curator, Africa, Oceania, and the Americas Email contact form Support Group Friends of AOA In the first decades of the twentieth century, prestigious European artists like Picasso, Derain, and Matisse revolutionized the art world by “discovering” African art, which formed a basis for Cubism and other avant-garde artistic styles. The aesthetics of African art—its bold forms, intense expressionistic aesthetic, and strong sculptural qualities—shook the art world and changed it forever, though few Westerners at that time recognized the complexity of African cultures or knew much about what these objects meant to the peoples who made them. During the twentieth century, the de Young’s collections of African art, like those of all major American museums, grew in a random fashion rather than by design— enriched in part by purchases, but mostly by donations from entrepreneurs, travelers, educators, and even Peace Corps volunteers. Some donors had strong aesthetic criteria, while others simply embraced anything deriving from the lands and peoples of Africa. What has always made the San Francisco Bay Area unique in its collecting patterns is its long-standing interest in cultural diversity or multiculturalism.

African art pieces are works of great beauty.
If you are passionate about art and love it , especially African art then you are going to enjoy this site. We are going to learn about the various regions of the continent, get to know about the local people and artisans who craft these beautiful works of art and also learn about the various kinds of African art As a little boy growing up in Africa, I remember going to the market on weekends with my grandmother and we would see various artisans in their little shops making different types of wood carvings, sculptures, paintings etc . I always admired the skill involved in taking a solid piece of wood and creating wooden sculptures, masks, walking canes, animals, dolls etc. As I got older I came to realize that their skills were passed on from generation to generation and for them creating these pieces of art was a way to provide for their families and not for recognition or for show. When I relocated to the United States I saw that there was a lot of art available but not enough information for people who want to know more and learn about art from Africa. As a result I decided to build this site to provide that information for all who need it.
