                       Paintings 
                            and 
           Other Fine Artworks

Welcome

Below artworks are originals. Signed or unsigned, if purchased, you own the artist's creation. At Ashione Gallery, we believe  everyone should own an original!

Current offerings include, Minerals' paintings, mixed media, oil on canvas, fence post paintings, beaded panels, our famous batiks, and banana leaf art works. Since they are all originals, it would be to one's advantage to purchase one's choice as soon as possible, as one would have to settle for a different one, once that choice is sold.

We made these choices with considerable deliberation in order to bring you works that we believe showcase the diverse creativity and dynamism of many of Africa's artists. Natural earthy elements, rough edges, paint run ins and run overs, are often present and seemingly purposefully incorporated into the art works by the artists, demonstrating a different approach to art creation. We believe this is part of the charm of these art works.

And naturally we bring you the very best art works that were available!

Enjoy.

Here are our offerings

                                 Minerals' Paintings

Samson Igbru Art's ingenuity lies in using "Natural Colored Product of Solid Minerals (Monazite, zircon, Ilmenite, silica etc.)" and paint, to create natural pictorial representations of cultural African life. Primitive looking and diminutive, the cultural images invoked add to the beauty, charm and mystique of the creations!
The artist's name, component of the materials used, and the theme of each painting are listed on the back of each piece.

Created on a wooden board, each approximately 6" x 4" x 1/4", is a work of art that comes ready to be hung, framed or placed on a stand. Limited supplies.
Great conversational pieces.

                                      Mixed Media

Our supply of this type mixed media is limited to these two. The artist has stylistically presented two enduring and quintessential images of Africa - that of an African woman involved in a daily activity and (that of) an African drummer.

The artist's chosen colors and hues, his masterful application of the paints, and brilliant rendition of the images, make these a joy to have. They are sure to please, blend in, and be complimentary to your other art work choices. Signed by artists.

Oil on Canvas

We have selected some oil on canvas paintings that we believe are not only wonderful but also thought provoking. Native artists sometimes add signature ingredients like tree sap, sediments and/or natural minerals to the mix of their raw materials, in this instance, oil.

Perhaps this and their dynamic creative abilities are some of the reasons behind their seemingly sharp focused, three dimensional and  photo realistic artworks.
The works are signed by the different artists. Enjoy.

Beaded panels are variously referred to as, "Cache-Sexe", Modesty aprons, bibs, cache-sex" and we hereby add our own terminology, accoutrements de la femme (Bad French? - Pardon!). It is not difficult to figure out what parts of the female anatomy they accoutring!

Hand strung and stitched with glass beads and fibers, they are considered fabulous African artworks and sought after world wide.

Paintings and Other Fine Artworks
 
Welcome
 
We are the Gallery that brought you those glorious original batik paintings that you so loved! We know, they were so popular and were all gone, before you had 
a chance to get yours. But not to worry, we are in negotiations to get you 
some, as we speak. 
 
You probably will get another 
chance come spring.  As you 
may know, we search thorough-
ly to bring you images that 
touch you and warm your hearts. 
Otherwise, what is the point? 
Sometimes your mind's eye can 
travel with these images to visit 
with the different African peoples, 
their way of life, and spirituality, 
etc. Some works are signed, others 
are of unknown artists. The art-
works hang easy. They can be the 
main attraction in a room or be 
enjoyed as second fiddle. They 
have hung in offices, country or 
town houses (some of these town 
houses are valued at millions of 
dollars - but we digress!) and in 
sumptuous apartments. They also 
make wonderful gifts. In addition, these  fine art works are all originals. You are able to purchase the artists' original (fine) works, not copies, reproductions, nor limited editions.
 
 
 
Our current offerings feature 
banana leaf and stem artwork- 
dried, prepared, dyed or painted, 
cut and pasted. How amazing and 
earth friendly is that! Burlap, silk, 
cottony or a combination of all 
materials are used as backgrounds. 
Infact a customer told us that his 
purchase was to be a gift to a 
world renowned poet (hint...Oprah 
adores her!). Some add splashes of 
color, others are spiritual in nature, 
and yet others are demurely elegant. 
Enjoy all! Our other offerings 
include, water colors, work on silk, 
charcoal, oil on canvas, etc. Many 
times, these artists mix their work 
 
 
materials with indigenous or foreign elements for beautiful works that you would 
enjoy for a long time. We are your African art specialists and we know what you 
love!!  Shop to buy your artwork now, while supplies last! Buy your artwork now!
