Since 1997, we have been working to increase exposure for African artists in the burgeoning Australian market. Masks, Paintings, Artefacts, Textiles and Jewellery – every piece is hand crafted, original and tells a story about the everyday and the extraordinary, teaching us about the history and culture of the region.
We believe in supporting and respecting the artists we buy from, doing business at local and fair market prices. We get to know each artist and supplier personally, establishing rapport and learning about the pieces they create before purchasing.
