We chat to Kobi & Kwame Mintah, co-founders of Efie Gallery in Al Quoz about how they aim to champion African art in Dubai, with a focus on artists from West Africa. The gallery represents both mid-career and established artists and creates a unique platform for collaboration and exchange between the Middle East and Africa. Efie gallery provides an artist studio for residency programmes caters for both the gallery’s artists and local artists and the mezzanine hosts a vinyl record gallery with rare and important vinyl records from around the world. It also acts as a space where visitors can enjoy the vibe and soak up both art and music.
