Founded in 2002 and located in Kampala, Afriart Gallery (AAG) has since become a leading contemporary art gallery representing artists from Africa. The gallery focuses on original forms of expression and dialogue with the public. It provides an environment where collectors can find powerful contemporary artistic ideas and discussions.
Afriart Gallery was founded by Daudi Karungi a trained artist who understands the difficulties young artists on the African continent face. The gallery team is committed to creating a fair playing field and supportive community for artists by continuously implementing projects that foster their growth through mentorship, visibility, and information archiving.
Works by AAG artists feature frequently on major platforms like museums, biennales, important exhibitions, and significant art fairs such as Art Basel Miami Beach, Abu Dhabi Art, 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair NY/London, Art Paris, INVESTEC Cape Town Art Fair, Joburg Art, Art X Lagos, AKAA Paris, and ARCO Lisbon.
