Resident Artists

Radu Tesaro

Radu Tesaro is a Czech artist who has spent many years in Zambia where she developed a large and competitive base of ardent collectors. She has held a number of exhibitions both in Zambia and in Prague, and her works are in demand. Her ability to create motion;  the unique brilliancy of African sunlight; the vibrancy and beauty of African colour makes her work exceptional.

Carl Longworth

Carl Longworth's work is one of the finest in brass sculpture you'll find in the UK. Its an enormous privilege to have his work in the gallery. His attention to detail without making the subject belaboured is sensitive, artistic with an expression of movement and pure character that epitomises the "jizz" of that bird. 

Utter utter joy.

Mathew Edenbrow

Mathew Edenbrow is a well recognised sculptor specialising in wildlife. With a PhD in Animal Behaviour, he draws inspiration from this understanding and his works capture the small changes in expression and body form that confirm them as sentient and beautiful beings. 

His sculptures have real presence.

Sue Jarvis

Sue Jarvis is a Zimbabwean artist who has exhibited extensively in Southern Africa, and this is the first  time her work has been shown in the UK. An exceptional artist working with pastels, ink and charcoal, her images are vibrant, very much alive, and bring the real Africa into your space.

Francois D'Elbee

I am thrilled to introduce to you a dear friend and well published photographer from Zambia, Francois D’Elbee. It's a rare honour to be able to represent his work, he is an author of several photographic books and has had many exhibitions of his artwork. He has worked extensively with many international NGO’s around Africa and his experience and ability to find and  meet those individuals, those situations that most people never see, is extraordinary and unique.

Laurence Yombwe

Lawrence Yombwe is the Godfather of art in Zambia. Sought after by all discerning art collectors, his work is steeped in Bemba folklore, spirits and people going about their every day business. He paints uniquely on hessian, building his colours and textures with mixed layers of oil and acrylics. His colours are earthy and softly vibrant and convey a real and yet etherial quality that is captivating and magical.

About the pricing of art work

image37

What makes a piece of art work worth the price asked for?

The answer in one word: Provenance!  What is provenance? - it is documented history of ownership

In the world of current artists, this in my view also includes demand for the artists work; number of solo exhibitions in recognised galleries; awards from reputable  institutions and finally,  the value the artist places on their own work .

So, the art work in the gallery ticks all those boxes. What about gallery commission you ask; the commission in my gallery is not what drives the price. 

The gallery guarantees provenance and offers the buyer not only a piece of artwork to enjoy but also a unique opportunity to invest in something that will give them pleasure for a long time.
