“Art can make a difference because it pulls people up short. It says, don’t accept things at their face value; you don’t have to go along with any of this; you can think for yourself.”

ICAfrican Students: The Refreshingly Beautiful campaign.

One of the most refreeshing Social Media Campaigns we have come across so far, from Ithaca college, African students are using great photography and gorgeous pictures to break stereotypes. We first found them on twitter and could not resist sending them a message to let them know how much their work is appreciated, you should do the same https://twitter.com/ICAfrican

"Africans do not all look alike."

  “Africans do not all look alike.” “Africans do not all look alike.”

"Is that the Zimbabwean flag we see? Nice!"

“Is that the Zimbabwean flag we see? Nice!”

Don’t forget to like Facebook page for more up do date creative inspiration (on the side bar.)

Stay Inspired 🙂

Jepchumba: Creative Superhero.

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 .
