African Township Art, this uniquely South African artform depicts the reality of the harsh life and poverty of the people living in African Townships, and yet through all this deprivation the spirit of the African Artists emerges with bright, colorful paintings. These African artists have no formal training and draw inspiration from their surroundings, their artistic style is bold and colorful and irregular. Acrylic on canvas artworks literally painted on the streets are sold to tourists for a fraction of their value. The Arts of Africa will only prosper and continue to gain popularity if these upcoming artists are supported and given every opportunity to grow their natural talent and develop into world renown artists.
