Ever since Africa was "discovered", non-Africans have controlled supply and pricing of African art. The middlemen would mark-up these goods 2,000% or more while giving the artists, whose skill and ingenuity produced the work, mere pennies. Fortunately, that day ended when the Internet literally shrunk the world.

Since the early days of the Intenet (1993), OLAfrica network has cultivated direct ties to many communities of African fine artists and can provide you the same art you see in catalogs like the Africa in Stone Catalogue and Gallery Sur a fraction of the advertised prices. How?

We buy from top artists who know from past experience that we will get them the best deal possible. They also know they will be able to retain more of the profits which herertofore were shared with middlemen who customarily took 85-90% of the inflated selling price. Because these artists share our vision of connecting Africans with the Diaspora, they work with us to ensure that our communities of knowledgeable investment get the lowest prices which guarantees a healthy return-on-investment in the years to come. It is truly a win-win situation and we encourage the formation of investment clubs to take full advantage of these opportunities. Buying many pieces instead of one enables us to negotiate incredible prices on these exquisite pieces for home or office.
