Check out the African Digital Art site. This trendy online space featuring everything from colourful posters to fashion trends is the brainchild of the Kenyan digital artist known as Jepchumba. Her passion for Africa’s arts scene has translated into a network of young (mostly African) creatives who are “pushing Digital Boundaries” in every way possible, and we love the way they are going about it!
Jepchumba made it onto the Forbes list of 20 Youngest Power Women in 2012, testament to the fact that the world is ready for this new brand of artists who are taking over Africa with their own refreshing brand of cool .

KB Mpofu is a talented photographer we recently spoke about on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/afrofresco), he portrays day to day life in a way that is charming and easy to relate to. Our favorites are the pictures he has taken using beautiful every day people as models (Such as the first one.)
For those who have been following this blog for a while, the reason the second picture may look familiar is because that young man is part of the duo The Satirists, who we recently featured, scroll down our page to read more on them.
