ABOUT US

ART OF CONNECTION

Art of Connection believes in weaving bonds between art, design and craftsmanship to create and showcase beautiful contemporary handcrafted pieces.

Art of Connection is a nomadic gallery based in South Africa, showcasing exclusive pieces of African design and craftsmanship in the most beautiful settings in Europe.

Each item is unique because it was created by placing emotion at the heart of the artistic experience.

Our pieces carry a strong cultural heritage and aesthetics

  • They are sustainable and made in Africa
  • They are unique or made in limited edition
  • They are contemporary and handcrafted with high quality standards

Once the pieces are completed and finalised Sophie extends the work and its worth by taking it to the viewers on an international scale.
