The rank prices of the initial offer goes from US$650 for little pieces to US$15,000 for the painting “Too Tasteful” by recognize Sudanese painter Rashid Diab, undoubtedly one of the stars of the show; but it is not the only one, Eria Nsubaga – Uganda, with his “The Stare Down” painting: a depiction of contemporary African man; the beautiful composition by Geraldine Robarts’ “Still life in Studio”; the white skinned temperament on the “Untitled” woodcut by Ethiopian Ephrem Solomon; the iconographic “Mother and Child” by Geoffrey Mukasa, the psychological suffering in “Regression Graph” by Boniface Maina – Kenya; the multiplying human bodies flowing through modernity in Dawit Abebe’s drawing; the society critic in “New Democracy” by Shabu Mwangi and the subtle and deep “Untitled” artwork by Paul Ondity are also remarkable highlights of the event.
