Africa Art Project –
Art Still Available!

Nairobi

September 2015-2016.
The Al-Gamal Family of the UAE created a Legacy in remembrance of their son Ali who transitioned late 2014. Their generous donation built the website  (www.theartboyz.com), which tells the story of Kevin, Ibrah, Mongo, Bobby, and Ras. The donation also provided an art showing in Nairobi, business cards and flyers, laptop for correspondence, painting materials, a trip to Diani Beach, and safe shelter. The Art Boyz however had a difficult time adjusting to life out of the slums,  still they are doing well. Ali Al-Gamal was an artists and a musician. In an unpredictable way, his legacy has been completely fulfilled.

RESULTS: All but 1 have moved out of the slums
Kevin – Working at a Diani Beach resort and selling his art to tourist on the beach.
Ibrah & Mongo – Laptop efficient and creating music in addition to selling their art.
Bobby & Ras – Apprenticeship at Banana Hill Gallery with ongoing sales at the gallery.
