OUR STORY

African Art is as old as humanity, yet so little is known or seen of the African Artist. 


1952 Africa is an expression of this protest; a bold attempt to give undiscovered African creative talent an opportunity to be seen, heard, and celebrated today. 


It is a private space dedicated to raw and authentic African art, culture and history; supporting all forms of artistic expression out of Africa. We are not motivated by profits, but by a desire to correct a cultural irregularity. 


This space is dedicated to the loving memory of Ezim Julia Egbuagu-Ugwu, Born July 1, 1952 in Ngwo, Enugu State, Nigeria. A lover of the people.
