We are leading African fine art consultants and auctioneers – we hold many records and industry firsts and have instigated a real paradigmatic shift, contributing to a more inclusive and representative industry, while increasing global appreciation and regard for art from this continent.


We operate from Johannesburg and Cape Town – while our focus is pan-African, we are located in both South African art world capitals, making access to the Client’s collection, as well as gallery exhibitions and auction previews of all important national offerings, practical and readily attainable.





Established in 2016 in response to an abidingly staid, non-representative and non-inclusive auction industry in South Africa, stunted by insularity and a lack in diversity, we are committed to being representative, while promoting diversity, access, and inclusivity throughout the industry.

We deliver a full spectrum of value-added Art Consulting and Collections Management Services and have been advising collectors, corporations and various institutions on buying and selling art since inception, and for many years prior to that in our respective former careers. 

We’re a young, yet dynamic company, led by a team of highly qualified and experienced Art Specialists, who are energetic and enthusiastic about the future of this continent, with extensive knowledge and a deep passion for South African and African art.


Building Collections of Value is our slogan.
It is the guiding philosophy and primary focus of Aspire and speaks to our vision, mission, and values.
We refer here to Value in all its relevant forms, including cultural, historical, aesthetic, and monetary value.
