Discovering Africa’s Creativity in Nairobi’s Market

Discovering Africa's Creativity in Nairobi's Market

While we continue to explore Kenya, after enjoying nature and all it has to offer from waterfalls to unending sight of beautiful animals and plants in a piece with Beatrice Ani, we took a walk through the markets in Nairobi to find amazing artworks, clothes, bracelets, and so much more displayed for sale.

Some of the artworks arranged in a seductive order have their inspiration borrowed from other parts of the continent including South Africa and Ghana among others.

The traders are full of life stationed in different locations with different products to catch your attention even from a distance. The atmosphere is welcoming and filled with sweet Swahili in the air.

The products are affordable but priceless. People don’t just say art is priceless; African art is priceless but you can definitely still get some in the market at an affordable price.
