We have just returned from a buying trip in East Africa so the website has some stunning new artwork on display now available for purchase.  Don’t forget all prices include GST and shipping is free to anywhere in Australia!

On the buying trip we visited Kenya and Tanzania; both countries are rich in beautiful vibrant artwork and so many talented artists.

First we went to Dar es Salaam, the main city in Tanzania where we purchased a stunning new collection of the vibrantly coloured and very popular Tingatinga paintings.

The Co-operative brings together highly skilled Tingatinga artists who spend their days at the co-operative painting their famous brightly coloured paintings.

Next we went to Nairobi, the capital of Kenya to meet with the artists we buy from there.  We brought some stunning high quality paintings from well renowned artists and .  We also stocked up on more of the ever popular candle wax batiks.  These batiks have been very popular and will brighten up any room with their vibrant colours.  We are the only people in Australia that sell these types of batiks.

On this trip we also purchased our first oil on canvas paintings which depict typical African scenes and once framed look stunning so keep an eye out for these in the ‘Paintings’ section of the website.

Also don’t forget to check out our great range of Shona Stone Sculptures, delivered to you anywhere in Australia!

We hope you enjoy browsing the new artwork on the website and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me at
