Cultural Art Wall Decor Print: Sisi Gorimampa Vol II African Art Print
Scene two of the Sisi series depicts the second most “indulged in” activity at the local marketplaces of my childhood - gossip, or what is playfully referred to as “asili” in my native language. It seemed that extremely animated conversations at the marketplace were the vehicles through which everyone learned about everyone else's business. I remember hiding under tables at the local markets so that I could effectively eavesdrop on the conversations folks were having as they set up their stalls each morning. Although I was too young to fully understand what those conversations really meant at the time, I was more interested in the emotive gestures that came through those animated conversations.
This print is a reproduction of an original Acrylic painting. It is Mach 2 in the Sisi Gorimampa series of paintings, of which there are ten total. The inspiration for this piece comes from my beautiful sisters who I grew up with as a youngster in Nigeria. This print is made on Hahnemuhle PhotoRag Baryta Premium Luster Photo Paper and comes in three sizes. It lies somewhere in between a gloss and matte finish, providing you with highly saturated, maximum ink coverage. Luster paper is also resistant to fingerprints, making it a popular choice for photographic prints. Each print has a 0.5" border on each side of the paper for easier matting.
Please note that this is a regular print that you will need to frame yourself. However, we also offer canvas wrap prints which are more expensive, but come ready to hang. Feel free to message me directly if you'd rather have those and thank you for stopping by our store.
Fun Fact: "Sisi Gorimampa" loosely translates from Yoruba to English as "Bald Sexy Woman". A fantastic way to beautify your living space.

As soon as I saw this painting, I knew I had to have it. If you’re looking for authentic African art, Nigerian specifically, then this is the place for you. Ordering was straightforward, it was delivered on time and now I have a beautiful piece of artwork to liven up my home
I bought this originally as a gift for my dad, but I have naija nostalgia EVERYTIME I look at it so I’m keeping it for myself instead. Definitely getting another one for my daughter’s room. Beautiful work and amazing detail!
I don’t know where to start! Chuba is an amazing person who helped me with my order so much! From the first message he was always really fast to answer (regardless of the time difference)! I had issues with USPS and Chuba was always there, calling on my behalf, looking into different options, just trying to make sure that I get my gift! And the print... I did not expect it to be such a good quality! When you touch it it feels so expensive! I could not be happier and I will be shouting all over the social media about Chuba and his amazing team! I am so grateful for all your help! Wishing you a very merry Christmas and I hope new year brings you all the success you wish! Laura
I bought two of these pillows and I am very happy with them. First of, they came filled; that was a pleasant surprise. They also arrived earlier than expected and I am very pleased with the quality. The material they are made with feels really good to the touch and I am confident these pillows will serve me well. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone.
