When visiting an exotic location, like South Africa, there’s always the urge to buy souvenirs, either as gifts for family and friends or simply as timely memories of an African safari. More often than not, we end up buying expensive, badly crafted bit and bobs which simply end up gathering dust.
Buying authentic South African art as a souvenir is not only a smart investment decision, it also guarantees that you have a totally unique, one-of-a-kind, handcrafted work of art which is yours and yours alone to enjoy. A wide array of South African artists, subject matter and art styles ensures the perfect pick regardless of the age or interests of the beneficiary.
To ensure you are buying authentic and original South African art as a souvenir, we strongly recommend you browse through the art categories and artists listed on our website fineartportfolio.com to order online, or visit one of our preferred South African galleries in person where our friendly and professional staff will gladly be of assistance.
Art mediums are the materials used by the artists to create a body of work. Oil paint, watercolour, acrylic paint and ink are popular media types, so too are a number of dry art mediums including pastel, charcoal, pencil and graphite.
The base material on which the pigment is applied is also considered an art medium. Canvas art, framed art and works on textiles, cardboard, wood, Perspex, paper, terracotta and a host of other materials are regularly used.
