A Scribe Called Tswa

A child will come to understand the meaning in their name
A tribe will retrace their pathway to the beginning of their totem
A people might preserve their culture for tomorrow’s generations
A simple prophecy in graffiti on a city wall some rock paintings”

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!
