African Digital Art Network was created and developed by Jepchumba. The term digital art is permeating through the web even though the precise definition is unclear. Digital art covers a wide range of artistic production; audio/visual production, animation, interactive projects, websites, short films, graphic art and design.
African Digital Art is an online collective, a creative space, where digital artist, enthusiasts and professionals can seek inspiration, showcase their artistry and connect with emerging artists.
Since it’s inception African Digital Art has presented unparalleled ideas, individualistic works and insightful designer solutions by the African creative. ADA has become a platform for innovation and inspiration with a sophisticated blend of fresh talent and successful designers and artists. Pushing Digital Boundaries has become the tag line that is now fused with ADA’s identity. As we navigate together, discovering new design solutions, artistic expressions and creative talent we constantly strive to foster the growing technology driven creative community that still remains in its infancy.
