Interview: Taking stock after the market African painting a mass phenomenon? Probably not (yet). Interview with Nana Amoah, gallery owner, MyAfricanPainting.de: A first balance sheet after the market launch of Frankfurt am Main, January 29, 2009, are Ms. Amoah, now half a year on the market. How’s it going? We can be satisfied. However, it is not easy to be known for a pure Internet offer. In addition, that the virtual world in fact is not the ideal medium for African-inspired art. She will be experienced sensually! Does that mean that your expectations have not complied and want to adopt MyAfricanPainting.de from the online world? No, not at all. Only the virtual approach needs just more time.
Although there is still room for upward, has shown that the low-cost offer is accepted very well. With regard to the featured artist, we want to make more in the future. The works by NII Kptenkple were quickly sold out. We also be strengthened in the future to support off-line Use activities. How many images have you sold since the launch? I can’t tell you that. One has become clear, however. The typical motifs such as elephants and lions are.
And also those that mainly represent the traditional Africa. Originally, we wanted to make less in this direction. But there is a very strong connotation between Africa and Savannah and the people and animals who live in Germany. That’s okay too. Should not mean, however, that we would offer in the future not equal abstract themes and motifs. By the way, we conducted an online survey on this topic, which reflects our experience: 80% of prospects for African painting looking for more traditional, figurative, naive style paintings, 15% prefer images that represent the modern Africa and a further 5% express great interest in those who have their starting point in the spiritual realm.
