Founded in 2019 by Thaddeus Wamukoya also known as Thadde Tewa, Tewasart Gallery is a contemporary art gallery under TEWASART AND PATRONS, a dynamic online platform and arts consultancy, based in Nairobi, Kenya. With support from our ever-growing network, including local and international artists, curators, and patrons; our mission is to inspire and invest in the growth of contemporary East African art and its artists.
TEWASART AND PATRONS are focused on highlighting and promoting contemporary East African art through organizing pop-up exhibitions, writing, contributing to artistic dialogues, and publishing digital content. Our publications focus on connecting the modern, unconventional and diverse ideas of our artists, to a wider audience. Our stories strive to create and open a map of East African contemporary art, and the artist’s journey.
In its short history, Tewas Art Gallery has become a thriving online platform, facilitating necessary critical engagement with the local and mainstream art markets. Through the dedication, innovative curatorial approach, and experience of our team, we are able to engage with more artists and advisories, in efforts to develop the creative industry, as a whole.
