I've been to this gallery twice. Each time I've visited I was inspired by the beautiful art. It's very captivating and truly breathtaking. I have purchased two prints and I'm very pleased with what I have. I will continue to go back because what I've seen is worth my return. I'm so sorry but I can't think of the represent overs name. He is such a warm man and very personal. I would recognize him anywhere lol😀

On our visit to Cape Town, we were interested in purchasing art pieces/paintings that were different from the typical tourist stuff. We accidently found The African Portrait Gallery as we walked through downtown Cape Town. Looking through the window at the exciting paintings, we had to go in to take closer look.

We spent over and hour looking through colorful works by a couple of South African artists that the gallery represented.
The owner was very patient with us a looked through a variety of different paintings, as we tried to make up our minds. We never felt pressured to make a quick purchase, and he was very accommodating as he showed a lot of different pieces as he provided interesting information about the artists. We eventually purchased three excellent quality giclee prints. And be cause we purchased the three sprints, the owner negotiated the price.

In the end, he carefully rolled the prints and prepared them for travel.

The gallery is has been around for decades with excellent service to clients and artists. You will not be disappointed for visiting or purchasing one of more of their pieces. Their prices are fair and negotiable
