Con­trib­u­tors:

Michelangelo’s Pieta is as alive today as it was 513 years ago. Every crease, every cord, every vein, every sinew in the fig­ures were molded with such pre­ci­sion that it appears as if Mary’s blood still courses hotly there while fac­ing her beloved, Jesus. Pieta, David and the ceil­ing of the Sis­tine Chapel are just a few of the mas­ter­pieces that Michelan­gelo con­tributed to the world of the Arts.



There have been many cel­e­brated artists and art­works before and since Michelan­gelo includ­ing: Mr. Eiffel’s La Tour, Mozart’s Don Giovanni,Rembrandt’s Night Watch,Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Vic­tor Hugo’s Les Mis­er­ables, The Great Pyra­mid of Giza, The Great Wall of China, Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, Van Gogh’s Sun­flow­ers, Wang Ximeng’sA Thou­sand Li of Moun­tains and Rivers, Handel’s Mes­siah, Andy Warhol’s pop art, Miriam Makeba’s Pata Pata, Henri Matisse’s Woman with a Hat, Pablo Picasso’s Weep­ing Woman, Sal­vador Dali’s Per­sis­tence of Mem­ory, Ara­bic Cal­lig­ra­phy form the Ottoman Empire, the Palae­olithic cave paint­ings of Las­caux, the colour­ful pot­tery of the Inca and Maya civ­i­liza­tions, the mono­lithic human fig­ures carved by the Rapa Nui peo­ple from rock on the Chilean Poly­ne­sian Easter Island, the images of Mohammed Amin, the per­for­mances of Char­l­ize Theron; the great voices of Luciano Pavarotti, Whit­ney Hous­ton, the Bea­t­les, Fela Kuti, Franco, Manu Dibango, Angelique Kidjo, Yous­sou Ndour, Oliver Mtuzukidsi, Cesaria Evora, Oum Kalthoum and many many more.


Art has been char­ac­ter­ized in terms of mime­sis, expres­sion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion of emo­tion, or other val­ues. It’s defined as a diver­sity of human activ­i­ties and the prod­ucts of those activ­i­ties which include the cre­ation of sounds, images or objects in numer­ous spheres includ­ing paint­ing, sculp­ture, print­mak­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, archi­tec­ture, lit­er­a­ture, music, dance, the­atre, film­mak­ing, and other visual media.


For many cen­turies Africa’s ances­tors have con­tributed immensely to the Arts through cul­tures as old as the con­ti­nent itself. It is now said that, for art to take on depth, strength, uni­ver­sal appeal and the for­mi­da­ble manip­u­la­tion of sim­plic­ity, the artist must suf­fer, must know anguish and a despair that unleashes their true artis­tic prowess. In this dis­cus­sion we will look at the many jour­neys and con­tem­po­rary con­tri­bu­tions of young African artists to this great world of the Arts.
