Banana Hill Art Gallery – Contemporary African Art Gallery, in Nairobi, Kenya. We represent over 70 of the most famous contemporary artists from mostly East Africa.
We have exhibitions every two weeks, showcasing the best art on offer presently in Kenya. In 1994, the Banana Hill Art Studio was born, starting with a membership of twelve artists. By 2005, this number had grown to over 38, some of whom had already made name internationally. In 2006, Shine Tani became the legal owner of what had been changed into the Banana Hill Art Gallery.
Since then, the Gallery has opened its doors to East African Art, first by exhibiting art from neighbours Tanzania and Uganda. This increased the fame of the Gallery among artists’ circles in the region, and soon other East African artists found their way to the Gallery. In 2011 we increased our geographical scope by organising an exhibition by Kofi Agoso from Ghana, West Africa. In 2012, twenty years after we started, Banana Hill counts over 70 artists from all over the continent.
