Such beautiful works of art. I wish I could afford to hang all of the art in my home. Such a beautiful place to just window shop, or buy if you can!

Excellent gallery with a great choice of clever and bright paintings by real South African artists. Some really good art to choose from and located in a busy part of town

Buy one before the price gets any higher, which they will do. A real pleasure to feast your eyes on.

A feast for the eyes. Makiwa's work is bright, bold and spectacular. His portraits are unlike anything I've ever seen.
