Prompted by the increasing international recognition of African artists, Prokraft Africa embarks on a journey to celebrate African talent by holding its first art gallery – the gravity art exhibition.

With space gravity, Prokraft Africa also seeks to establish a platform to challenge and inspire creatives by holding themed art galleries.

Black – the exhibition

The exhibition features artwork from Prokraft Africa talents Jeffrey Otieno, Joe Makeni, Mutua Matheka, Osborne Macharia and Thandiwe Muriu. Prokraft has challenged the talents to create a minimum 5 pieces each, defining black from their perspective, while remaining consistent to personal style of work. Each of the pieces will be produced in a limited edition of 10.

PROKRAFT AFRICA is East Africa’s first creative talent management agency and represents some of the region’s highest ranking creative professionals in photography and illustrations. Since its formation, PROKRAFT AFRICA has set a benchmark for visual digital artwork produced on the continent, resulting PROKRAFT AFRICA talents being ranked as part of the world’s top 200 digital artists by Lürzer’s archive in 2015. PROKRAFT AFRICA’s talents have worked with various visual art production campaigns for corporations such as Mercedes, KPLC, Coca-Cola, Diageo, Pepsi, Samsung and Safaricom.
