Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of contemporary African art. As a new branch of our creative studio, we are dedicated to showcasing the remarkable talents of artists and artisans from across the country, bringing their exquisite creations to the forefront of the art scene.

At Kush and Kemet, we believe in the power of art to inspire, provoke, and uplift. We have carefully curated a diverse group of artists and art suppliers who share our passion for capturing the soul and essence of Africa through their creations. From talented ceramicists, painters, and product designers to visionary 3D digital artists, each artist we partner with brings their unique perspective and artistic vision to the forefront.

Through our social media platforms and upcoming online store, we provide a platform for these exceptional artists to showcase their work to a global audience. Whether you are a homeowner seeking to infuse your space with contemporary African decoration items or a hospitality establishment such as hotels, resorts, safari lodges, cottages, coffee shops, or restaurants, our curated selection of art pieces will captivate and inspire you.

One of our main channels for showcasing these exceptional works is through monthly market-days and weekends. These events serve as vibrant celebrations of African creativity, where you can experience first-hand the soulful and thought-provoking themes that permeate our designs. By attending these events, you have the opportunity to engage directly with the artists, learn about their creative process, and discover the stories behind each piece.

We invite you to follow us on social media to stay updated on our latest collaborations and upcoming events. Join us on this artistic journey as we celebrate the richness of African culture, challenge conventions, and inspire conversations through the power of contemporary art.
