It has been a year since the launch of Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA), which has been heralded as one of Africa’s biggest and most influential contemporary art museums. What better time to celebrate the anniversary of the world’s largest museum dedicated to contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora than during tourism month?

Since September is Tourism Month, why not take your weekend getaway, baecation, or family vacays to the next level by exploring a totally immersive artistic experience? Check out these art-inspired and quirky homes on Airbnb around the world that look spookily similar to some of the Zeitz MOCAA artworks.  

 

A Bohemian Shack in Paradise

With the look and feel of The Knight of the Long Knives by Athi-Patra Ruga, this bohemian home is in the US Virgin Islands and is located just off the beach. Those who stay here will not only wake up to a colourful display of art but also to the sound of the ocean.

Wooden house in Bad Nieuweschans

This home bears an uncanny resemblance to the work of Gareth Nyandoro. This home in the Netherlands is cosy and comfortable and close to the studio of the host, who is himself an artist. If you can’t make it to Zeitz MOCAA, then be sure to have a look at Jonathan’s black and white artworks, while also taking in the natural surroundings of the area.

Unique Artistic Apartment

Inspired by the works of Salvador Dali and Gaudi, this Macedonia home is perfect for those who appreciate Spanish art. Decorative items adorn almost every wall and those who stay here will most certainly feel as though they are sailing on a Spanish ship. Here, we see something similar to Choc Des Cultures-Bon Vent by Julien Sinzogan.

Quirky Home in Missouri

This quirky space looks similar to the work of Frances Goodman. If you enjoy waking up to a burst of colour, then this Hermann Airbnb home is just for you. This eclectic place can hold up to six guests and, according to previous guests, feels just like home to anyone who stays there.
