This stunning new complex creates the perfect setting for this unique African contemporary art gallery. A permanent exhibition of artwork by Mr Nelson Mandela and other talented South African artists is on view in a Zulu hut made from thatch. Combinations of sandstone flooring, inlays of African woods, aluminum, granite, kudu leather and 100’s of globes suspended from the thatch ceiling make this gallery a must see for any art lover.
This gallery has a strong empowerment focus being 100% woman owned and run. Further to this, the talented artists Anthony Mutheki and Elga Rabe both benefit from profit shares in The Touch of Mandela Art Gallery. The powerful works of Mutheki and Rabe are at home in this African gallery and art lovers can be tempted by wonderful works in various styles and mediums including contemporary and traditional paintings and wonderful ceramics and bronzes by some of South Africa’s top artists.
