Aspire Art is delighted to have been entrusted with a Private Collection of contemporary African and international art. The exciting single-owner sale is divided into two parts – a Live and Online collection – giving bidders two separate opportunities to participate.

The Live sale comprises 79 lots and, notably, includes important works by new voices in African art. Amongst the works on offer are 3 vibrant, daringly brash, wildly dissolute, expressionist canvases by Zimbabwean artist Wycliffe Mundopa and a large-scale work ­referencing journeys of displacement and African migration – by Rwandan artist Serge Alain Nitegeka. Also included are two superb tapestries by famed South African artist Athi-Patra Ruga as well as Ed Young’s much-celebrated Hero, a mesmerising rendition of the artist as superhero – or rather mildly dejected antihero.

Representative of Africa, right now, in the present and indeed into the future this vibrant collection will be on display at Aspire Art, Johannesburg from 9-22 June.
