About Me

I'm Michael,

Led by Michael Z. Muhammad, a seasoned art professional with over three decades of experience, the gallery showcases a diverse array of artworks that beautifully encompass the rich cultures, histories, and identities of African people. 

Step into Afrikan World Art and immerse yourself in the artistic mastery of different African regions and ethnic groups. Discover the profound symbolism and distinct aesthetic values expressed through sculptures and masks, which are often used for religious, ceremonial, or social purposes. Each piece offers a glimpse into the beliefs, values, and emotions of the artists and their communities. 

Marvel at the vibrant expressions captured in paintings and textiles, which depict scenes from everyday life, historical events, and mythical stories. These remarkable artworks are not only visually captivating but also convey deep symbolic meanings and abstract concepts.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


 I am inspired by the creation and all of the beauty that surrounds it.


My art incorporates various techniques, ranging from the Ghanaian brass art utilizing both oil and acrylic paint to the captivating silk thread art that weaves a tapestry of beauty.  Its diverse styles and mediums create an engaging and visually stunning experience.

Career Highlights

I have showcased my work at prestigious venues, ranging from the Zora Neal Hurston Fine Arts Festival to the legendary Bimbi Festival in North Carolina. Notably, I had the opportunity to participate in the largest art festival ever held on a HBCU at Cheyney University, sponsored by the iconic October Gallery.
