Lova-Ruth Cohen was born and raised in Cameroon, lives in Luxembourg, and has been passionate about art since her childhood. After a career in finance, she decided to promote contemporary art. Demand from collectors and admirers of contemporary African art, led her to create the web-shop AfricaPrints.art. The idea was simple: making contemporary African art accessible to a large audience by publishing high quality limited edition prints of the finest of African art.
Lova-Ruth kindly invites you to check out the web-shop regularly, as new editions are added to the collection continuously.
Bill Kouélany is a leading figure in the arts in Congo-Brazzaville and was the first sub-Saharan woman invited to participate in documenta. She brings together multiple art forms, from writing and collage to painting and stage design, in imaginative ways that respond to a wide range of issues. In 2012 Kouélany founded Les Ateliers Sahm, a contemporary art centre that is unique in Congo-Brazzaville. It not only brings artists together to experiment and exchange ideas, it also provides space and materials for them to work in a wide variety of disciplines. Kouélany is committed to fostering young artists and to gender equality, creating opportunities for women through scholarships for art materials. Kouélany initiated RIAC, an annual month of performances, workshops and seminars by international experts as well as a residency programme that invites African and international artists to work with Congolese artists on specific themes. Ateliers Sahm also runs weekly workshops that support vulnerable children. In addition, she organises the participation of young artists in Dakar Biennale’s fringe programme, advancing their careers.
