Ozwald Boateng will host a group exhibition of artists represented by Kamba Fine Art at his iconic Savile Row flagship store. Kamba Fine Art has curated a bespoke exhibition for Ozwald Boateng, featuring unique pieces by artists including; Kofi Allen, Dominique Zinkpe and Babajide Olatunji.
Kamba Fine Art founder Leyla Simple commented about the collaboration: “Our Kamba team is particularly delighted to be able to work with Ozwald Boateng; he is a great and innovative artist in his own right, and each collection he creates is both inspiring and elegant. We hope that the combination of art – Ozwald’s and the artists we bring together - will create something truly unique for those who attend the show. The Kamba Fine Art hallmark has always been to present the best of modern art from different media and from selected African countries. Our selections are always a blend of established leaders in selected categories, complemented by a set of selected rising stars of the future – the combination creates a unique blend of the best of contemporary African art in all of its forms.”
Ozwald Boateng commented: “African culture is key to the future of the world, and I look forward to celebrating artists of African descent within my space.”
Kamba Fine Art was established by Leyla Simple in 2011. Leyla travels Africa extensively looking for promising new talent, and provides the artists she discovers with a platform to exhibit their work at different venues and art fairs around the world. Recently she has exhibited at the Tribal Art Fair in London and has plans for pop up exhibitions in cities across the globe.
Located in the Grays Centre in the heart of London’s Mayfair, Kamba Fine Art exhibits the finest in contemporary African photography, paintings, sculpture and limited edition prints. The gallery runs an innovative programme of exhibitions both on and off site throughout the year, and participates regularly in international art fairs.
