Building Art Collections
of Value


Aspire Art is a new kind of art company. Focussing primarily on 20th-century, modern and contemporary art from Africa, we are passionate about connecting collectors with exceptional artworks by providing a range of buying and selling platforms and opportunities.


Our annual programme of live auctions in Cape Town and Johannesburg is complemented by an exciting series of online auctions. We also facilitate private sales and host curated selling exhibitions.

Founded in 2016, we quickly became leaders in the sale of contemporary African art alongside canonical Black Modernist works at auction and currently hold many records and industry firsts.

In addition to our sales and exhibition programs, an important core of our business is our valuation and extensive art advisory services to private clients and estates as well as public and corporate institutions.

 The Aspire team is led by a dynamic group of specialists with extensive knowledge, industry experience and great enthusiasm for African art. We pool our expertise to provide clients with thorough art market insight, fair advice and trend forecasting, to ensure a richly comprehensive and rewarding art-collecting experience.
