So, you may have friends who come back from holidays across the globe showing off the art they bought back, and maybe they even have tried to convince you that it’s not only a nice holiday memoir but also a potential investment. Asian art, European art, even Latin American. But what you should be investing in right now – despite it being so often overlooked – is undoubtedly African Art. The steady increase in African Art exhibitions, such as the inclusion of the African Art Fair in the New York Frieze art week in the United States – proves that art connoisseurs and investors are slowly but surely recognising the spectacular potential of African art. And perhaps even more encouraging is that over half of these investors are African themselves – proving that there is a correlation between Africa’s continued economic growth (especially in cities such as Lagos and Nairobi) and the increase in revenue from African art investments. And if you wanted yet more evidence of the value of investing in African art, you only need to consider the fact that gold and art are the two main commodities that provide the greatest returns for investors across the world.
