About Harry

Harry is an artist with a passion and an eye for the wonder of African creativity. Harry has travelled extensively throughout Africa in search of unique expressions of this creativity and watches with interest how Africa’s diverse cultures adapt and move over time. He has collected a large sampling of the best artefacts and crafts from South Africa and from other parts of Africa that reflect the cosmopolitan and ever shifting, yet distinctively African nature of a continent that is constantly evolving. He loves to share the stories of the artists and artisans whose products he sells.
