Jo Anke Art is an online destination for avid art collectors and interior decorators to browse and buy contemporary South African art online…
The site features contemporary oil paintings, photography and pop art in a variety of themes that explore different African contemporary stories from social to politics and simply fun.
“The aim was to create a good first impression. The navigation is simple which allows for a convenient way to find artworks, says Hlengiwe Vilakati, founder of Jo Anke Art. “All the basics are in place, buyers can complete a transaction with ease.”
Products are filtered by lifestyle preferences like pop culture, politics, popularity and more.
“My favourite new feature from the site is ART AFICIONADO – an online blog where African contemporary art buyers share their African art adventures,” says Vilakati.
Vilakati began working with young artists through the Jo’burg Art Fair. Together with the website, the gallery space in Johannesburg offers a private preview of a selection of artworks for interested buyers. Viewing is by appointment only.
