    African culture: Street art

    More from Rimon007



    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Brazilian art lover Rimon007 captured this image of a glorious mural he painted on a school in Kubuneh, Gambia, this year. The mural forms part of the Wide Open Walls project, aimed at bring together artists to celebrate local communities in Gambia and also encourage tourism. Rimon says much iconic Western art owes a debt to African art. "I believe that the culture of Africans inspires artists of all times," he says. "Modigliani and Picasso are some examples of African influence in the art world."
