Urban Africans

Forget giraffes, zebras and wooden masks; Africa is modernising at a dizzying rate! Its mega-cities are dynamic and buzzing with technology and innovations. There are winners and losers, fast bucks and ambitious new businesses and construction sites. The population is young, connected and vibrant. Modernity and tradition create sparks as they live side-by-side. 

On Urban Africans you’ll find real stories about real people. You’ll catch a glimpse of the diversity of everyday city life through the eyes of artists on the African continent. Their innovative and creative minds turn stereotypes on their head.

These urban African artists are not afraid to challenge assumptions and conventions and live their lives to the full.

I firmly believe their stories deserve to be shared.
