An Introduction to Balafun Art! ART Stands for…

ART stands for African Renowned Treasures! Just kidding of course, but we do love African treasures here at Balafun!


Welcome to Balafun! This is our very first blog post and we would love to introduce you to some marvelous treasures from the heart of Africa. We are a group of authors, artists and technologist who love African Art so much we want to share it with the world.

Through this blog, you will have the opportunity to see Africa through the lenses of local Artists. From our studio in Yaoundé, Cameroon we create Art that depicts our cultures, traditions and beliefs. It all started with an idea to retell stories we grew up listening to for our kids and their friends.

In this day and age, we believe that everyone deserves to be a global citizen. A citizen of the world who knows and understands what it’s like to live in Africa. The type of music we play or dance to; the food we eat; the fun we share; the challenges we encounter, and even the dreams we have.

Please join us on this journey as we virtually take you, via creative ways, to places that you have never been before, to the Africa the media never tells you about. Through our book collection and our artistic pieces discover priceless African Treasures and Artists – one creation at a time.

Thank you for visiting and please help us spread the word.
