The artwork that you have in your home is a representation of who you are, and what better way to show who you are than to source your artwork from local artworks? Sourcing artwork from local artists is a way to show your patriotism and help your fellow citizens. Sourcing from local artists also comes with a few advantages:
Sourcing local artworks is beneficial to the artists. You are giving them the opportunity to grow and become well recognised. If they are well recognised, these artists can show the world the beauty of South African culture through artwork. Local artwork is easy to support because of its affordability and cultural links.
Local art is more affordable than international artwork. Local pieces are less expensive because the artists are not as well known as international artist. The art that you source from local artists is an investment because as they artists popularity increases, so does the value of their artwork.
Culture is a major influence in local art. The South African culture resonates through all the artwork by local artists – as well as the emotions of the artists – and creates a proud common ground for people of all ages, races and genders to celebrate our country’s heritage. Local artwork also comes with the benefit of many different styles. There are many African styles of art for you to choose from, with each piece being unique and original to the South African culture.
