I have always had a life-long fascination for Africa and have travelled the continent widely. It’s beautiful, but it’s always the people who keep me coming back. As an Art Historian I am always fascinated by what people create, under which circumstances and what their motivation is.

My goal is to create a broader awareness about contemporary African art, artists and the context they operate in. For this reason I’ve set up Urban Africans where you can read real stories about real people.
