About Us

Artyli.com is situated at Nelson Mandela Square which is a prime lifestyle, fine dining, and business destination for locals and tourists alike. Artyli.com exhibits and sells artwork created by a variety of artists who are at different stages in their careers. Predominantly we represent emerging and mid-career contemporary African artists. Our gallery showcases original artwork including painting, drawing, mixed media artworks, limited edition prints, sculpture, and ceramics. We aim to facilitate the opportunity for contemporary African artists to exhibit and sell both through our gallery as well as on our digital platform Artyli.com also markets artwork and exhibitions on the artsy platform. Both our online platform and artsy create opportunities for collectors from the global community to purchase artwork. From inception in 2020, we anticipated the global market, acquired our export license, and have reliable shipping partners. Artyli.com regularly ships artwork to global destinations.

We are thrilled and excited about artyli.com, about the opportunity it releases for both artists and collectors. By having more than one platform for both exhibitions and sales in our gallery model, we are able to reach a broader market. We cater for the seasoned collector as well as younger and newer collectors.

We are solving problems in the marketplace, the first problem is that artwork is often unaffordable, especially for younger collectors, by creating an affordable limited edition print gallery, we assist younger newer art loves to kick start a collection of artworks. This solves a second problem for the artist. The life of an artist is like a landscape strewn with challenges and obstacles. Creating artwork, is about digging deep into yourself, to deliver thoughts and stories, in new and exciting ways, often not knowing when you will sell your work. Every artist exhibiting here, and others that are coming on board, has had the courage to rise to this challenge. By creating both an original and a limited-edition print gallery, our artists can make income on the original as well as passive income through a stream of limited edition prints so that they can keep creating beautiful pieces.
