Lisa King unveils Art Trader, a gathering hub for artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts in South Africa
Lisa King, a name synonymous with art and exquisite spaces in South Africa, has once again delighted art enthusiasts by cutting the red ribbon and welcoming all to her new offering, Art Trader. The gallery embodies Lisa’s unwavering passion for art. It’s more than just a space for showcasing artworks; it’s a vibrant hub where artists, collectors, and enthusiasts converge, redefining the traditional art buying and selling experience. Regardless of whether you’re new to collecting or an experienced enthusiast, Art Trader offers a welcoming atmosphere where you can buy, sell, update your collection, or simply immerse yourself in conversations while admiring the latest artistic creations.
I aimed to create a space that welcomes everyone, where anyone can step in and appreciate the beauty of exquisite art. After engaging with collectors and art lovers for over two decades, I’ve realised that art should be accessible and valued for its sheer beauty.
What captivates me about this space is its charm. Every corner holds something stunning, each with its own narrative. That’s the essence of art – you witness a story on canvas, but as you delve deeper, your own interpretation unfolds, making that narrative uniquely yours.
What sets Art Trader apart is its thoughtfully curated selection of artworks that encapsulate a diverse spectrum of human expression. Lisa’s gallery pulsates with energy, reflecting the intricate connections she has cultivated throughout her career, reaching new pinnacles.
The current exhibition showcases a meticulously curated collection, spotlighting stunning pieces by esteemed artists like Vanessa Berlein, Gavin Larkin, Bassa Aspinall, and Fiona Goldthorpe.
