Who We Are
Splash of Africa is an online store with an amazing focus on original African Art straight from the our Artists living on the continent, contemporary African paintings, sculptures and fabrics straight from the source.
My name is Edwina, founder and co owner of Splash of Africa with its base in Mjøndalen Norway. I was born in Liberia, West Africa and have lived since 1990 in The Netherlands and in 2013 in Norway. Although am not an artist myself, I am a big fan of contemporary art. Besides me there is also my husband Trygve, my longtime friend Edwin, his wife Johana, my foot friendly friend Dimitri and our sister Sylvie.
All our paintings are owned by Splash of Africa as they have been fully paid for directly to the Artists individually.
We have a small but dedicated team both in Norway, The Netherlands, The United Kingdom and western Africa. We are in constant contact with clients, our Artists and our team in West Africa, promoting and marketing continuously. In West Africa, we have team members in the whole of Africa whom are in constant contact with our artists and make sure that paintings ordered for a paid for fully and send over to us here if I don’t bring them myself during my African trips.
Where do your paintings come from?
We buy all of our paintings from African artists themselves so far we have been focused on the western coast ie Senegal, Cameroon, Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia and Ivory Coast, however we are currently in the process of getting more Artists from various parts of the continent to join our team and sell us their Art work. We have contractual agreements and relationships with various Artists from the whole of the western cape, to central, eastern and Southern Africa. So, we invite you to check our site out on a regular basis to get current updates.
