Africa Art Art Beat Culture Weekend

Art Beat – Feel the African Art

Welcome to “Art Gallery by CCIPS-AO”. The Art Gallery by CCIPS-AO concept was born within the program of the Culture Commission of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Cultural Promotion Portugal – Senegal & West Africa, its main objective is to promote and enhance African Art.

The project was developed as an international platform and seeks to form a new mindset and drive empowerment to bring together collectors, creators, critics, or simple art enthusiasts. The Art Gallery by CCIPS-AO concept aims to become a reference in the sector, creating bridges between the African continent and the rest of the world. Since our creation has always been a strong belief in the skills and creativity of artists and their cultural output.

Art is something unique, a truly footprint of civilization, we consider art as an experience, much more them an object. In a world “addicted” to constant evolution and change, Art is, probably, a state of mind more than anything else, and it is through this dynamic that we decided to create a platform ” liberal and democratic ” for share, negotiate or even reflect on art.


Someone as described:

“Art is a magic switch able of connecting us deeply to different worlds and times; art improves us on a higher intellectual and emotional level”

It was like this, invested in this spirit, that we  launched the “Art Beat”, a series of manifestos on art and culture that we will bring, each month, to our followers.

Thank you for your best attention
