The design highlights are:

  • Emphasis on African and African Diaspora Art
  • It is a place where artists and non-artists can come together and exchange ideas
  • Inspired by the African Art that it showcases
  • African Art characteristics like smooth and organic forms, luminosity, balance, diversity and the notion of a passage are the underlying design elements in Akego
