Art is a beautiful expressive way to personalise your interior spaces. The world of African art is booming with record sales being set in the major auction hubs of London and New York. Across the African continent collectors from Lagos to Cape Town are increasing investing in homegrown and regional talent.

The world of art collecting can seem intimidating to the first time collector, and it can also be difficult to know where to find pieces and see the different artworks in one place.
1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair has helped to bridge the gap with annual showcases in London, New York and Marrakech, but unless one is able to travel viewing getting in front of the leading galleries can be a challenge. This is where Latitudes steps in. Recognising a need to bring together African and international galleries who represent African artists into one space Latitudes has launched an online marketplace to make African art accessible to the world.
With 350 artists, 120 galleries, and 20 countries represented the platform enables you to browse from the comfort of your home and contact the galleries directly.
