SLOW Magazine - - Must Go -

Guns & Rain is a cu­rated on­line gallery of con­tem­po­rary fine art from South­ern African artists, both emerg­ing and es­tab­lished. You can or­der your art on­line and have it de­liv­ered any­where in the world. If you don’t find what you’re look­ing for, Guns & Rain will help you do an “off­line” cus­tom search based on your in­ter­ests and re­quire­ments, go­ing be­yond what’s on the web­site.

Founder Julie Tay­lor is an an­thro­pol­o­gist, com­mu­ni­ca­tions guru, and art en­tre­pre­neur, and is in­ter­ested in the in­ter­sec­tion of tech­nol­ogy, the cre­ative spirit, and the un­der­rep­re­sen­ta­tion of African fine art in the global econ­omy.

She was born and raised in Zim­babwe and holds de­grees from Ox­ford and Cam­bridge. She is au­thor of Nam­ing the Land, a book based on her doc­toral re­search about San iden­tity in north­ern Namibia. Be­fore Guns & Rain, Tay­lor ran Google’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions for Africa. She is cur­rently study­ing for a Masters in His­tory of Art at Wits Univer­sity in Jo­han­nes­burg.

The name Guns & Rain is used with ac­knowl­edge­ment and thanks. It comes from the ac­claimed work of South African-born Bri­tish an­thro­pol­o­gist and play­wright David Lan, who wrote about guer­ril­las and spirit medi­ums in Zim­babwe’s lib­er­a­tion strug­gle.

Guns & Rain is com­mit­ted mind­ful, and eth­i­cal trade. to fair,
