The Official Website of the
John Muafangejo Trust
This is the official web site for both the works of the International
Artist John Muafangejo and that of the John Muafangejo Trust which holds
worldwide copyright to his work. The Trust has as adviser Orde Levinson,
acknowledged international expert on the work of Muafangejo and author
of two books (including the catalogue raisonnee of his work) and many
articles on him. Other advisors are willing to also assist Mr Levinson
in the assement of Muafangejo's works, in terms of quality and authenticity.
The linocuts of John Ndevasia Muafangejo are world famous, and his work
has received praise and recognition accorded to no other contemporary
African artist. Although cut short by his death on 27th November 1987,
his unique life gave rise to a very distinct, open and autobiographical
style. He is now considered among the best exponents of linocut in the
twentieth century, and his work gives cause for a re-evaluation of the
importance of contemporary African art to a western audience.
