Today, as you walk in many homes, be it western nations or Africa, you will find either an African-themed pot for decoration, wall hangings, or textile for an upcoming occasion. When we speak of smoothness of finish, the complexity of composition, balance, symmetry, and clarity of detail in the art, African art tops the list. The beautiful and diverse continent of Africa is brought together by African art. It is through art that Africans can express and tell their story, especially historically. However, telling the actual story of African art has never gotten any easier given the new generation of museums established all over Africa.
African art ranges from historical paintings, sculptures, rock art, textiles, beadwork.

There is identity in African art. For instance, most visual arts tell unspoken histories of a particular community or individual or their culture. The west coast community is rich in textiles and furniture, wood carvings in central Africa, and many art forms. Also, the Egyptian arts show leadership and kingdoms as well as the growth of religion.
