SURGE IN DEMAND FOR CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN ART

I had the privilege to go on air and discuss the growing popularity of contemporary African Art in the international art market.  It comes as no surprise that I was keen to discuss this very topic having been banging on and on about my love of contemporary African art for YEARS to anyone who would listen! What is amazing is that the market itself sees the talent and potential of contemporary African art and people are starting to take notice of what was deemed a "niche" genre before.

Currently the South Africans and Nigerians are the biggest buyers, however with the increase of art galleries, collections and fairs in London, New York, Paris and beyond catering specifically to African artists, the buyers will soon come from all over.

It is truly an exciting time in the African art world.
