Africa Art | African Art Images by Osborne Macharia

Kenya’s rising star in the African art world is Osborne Macharia, known as an Afrofuturist. He creates fantastical images juxtaposing the past and present of Kenyan culture and history. This image is part of his ‘Melanin-0’ collection, Africa art which explores the controversial subject of people living with Albinism in Africa. This collection subverts the negative views many have towards those with Albinism in many African countries, by showing who the people affected by this pigmentation are, their values, ambitions, dreams and most importantly to show how they are not different from anyone else.
