The art of exotic cultures has exerted a force of attraction to the European civilization since the nineteenth century. The African culture is one of the most influential, having a decisive role in the history of modern and contemporary European art. European artists saw in primitive art an opening to unexplored ways of expression, noting the extraordinary "modernity" the abstract, symbolic representations often had. It can be said that abstraction unites, in some cases, the primitive artistic vision with the contemporary one. Thus the notion of abstract contemporary art appears under two specific forms of primitive art: the abstract as a sign and symbol and the abstraction resulting from simplification, the stylization of figurative forms.

Africa has produced over the years a variety of artistic objects from prehistory to the contemporary period. Regarding the "content" and its symbolism, African art has an unmistakable character, strongly influenced by religious beliefs and magical practices. The entire African culture is shrouded by an aura of mystery that still lingers. The uniqueness of the African culture lies in its primitive appearance, but which is warm and personal, given by the fact that every item is handmade without modern technology with rudimentary means of human expression that lives in direct contact with nature. From the clothes worn, the household items, those with religious purpose or those with purely decorative function, all items are carrying the emotional and sincere charge. From here the uniqueness and value of exotic primitive cultures is born.
