My Highlights from 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair 2014
I was most impressed with the preview of works on offer and selected those that I would most wish to be included in our forthcoming auctions. These are works and artists that I believe are worth buying.
Hazoumè’s masks are masterpieces. He is the original!
You should never ignore work by Chéri Samba. He is one of the few artists with a longstanding record in a very new market.
Owusu’s symbols and muscular figures make his work unique. He is also a charming man and has the firmest handshake of any artist I know!
Sokari is enormously talented—a genius at metalwork. Go to her studio visit through the 1:54 fair website.
I love Peju’s work. We sold one this year for a record auction price.
Edson was the worthy winner of the Palm d’Or in Venice last year.
