Yes, African Art Is More Than Tribal Art ! ! !
The African art is found in sculpture, architecture, pottery, weaving, painting, photography, jewellery and many more. It stands for big events, and has a special meaning for those who practice it.
For example painters like Améyovi Homawoo and Sokey Edorh express through their various works realities of daily life, whether it be of women in society, the world and its aspects it helps to express feelings and emotions by the work of these designers.
The materials used are often derived from nature like wood, animal skin, iron and gold or ivory, clay, earth and stone. African art is characterised by respect for traditional forms.
For museum visitors, African objects and sculptures are works of art and source of inspiration for artists of the early twentieth century. But it would be quite simplistic to consider them based on this angle. It is primarily for personal and ceremonial works specific to each African community.
African art is little known, it is a ritual art strongly influenced decorative values. All purely symbolic and rare objects that implement the succession of African religion, beliefs, emotions or feelings of the artist who created it and the tribe to which it belongs. The artist does not reproduce nature, it is his purpose to interpret it.
