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.
