The mission of this book is to illustrate Africa's immensely fertile artistic landscape. Africa has emerged from its colonial past and is asserting its own identity. African art is not only confined to the continent itself, but has spread world-wide through the work of those descended from the enforced migrations of the slave trade and those who have more recently left their homesin Africa to take their place on an international stage.

This book brings together more than 60 of Africa's most creative contemporary artists, drawn from across the African continent as well as from Europe, North America, the Caribbean, and South America. Their art leaps off the page with over 350 color images (many especially commissioned). In addition to painters, sculptors, and photographers, there are a number of artists whose work embraces performance and installation. Many of the materials they use are as unorthodox astheir imagery, with ready made and found objects.
