Collectors Resale is a curated secondary art market for Art Collectors - we provide a unique venue for collectors of Emerging South African Art to discover up-and-coming artists and edit their personal art collections. There are plenty of reasons why a collector would want to resell artwork that have nothing to do with it being less valuable than it was when they bought it - these are works that are not lucrative enough for the big auction houses, and galleries are reluctant to touch them for fear of dampening the value of their primary market inventory. Collectors Resale offers art collectors the opportunity to edit their personal collections, and buyers the opportunity to purchase works which are not "used" but are now "available". If you would like to consign an artwork, please refer to our Sell Your Art. page.
If you see a piece you admire but is not quite what you were looking for, it is often possible to commission the artist to create something unique to fit your personal specifications for a similar price. We have an extensive collection of artists working in a diversity of mediums and styles. Whether you are commissioning a portrait of yourself, a member of your family, a friend, a pet, or on behalf of an organisation, we will consult with you and your chosen artist throughout the process to ensure your intended result is achieved.
We offer art consultancy to corporate and private clients on their art purchases. Owning art is an essential way for a business to distinguish itself from it's competitors, and for individuals to reflect their personality within their homes. It is also a way of investing in emerging artistic talent. We offer advice on any artwork requirement, however large or small your budget. We can offer artists from our diverse portfolio who are at different stages of their careers and can provide as much or as little advice as you require. Initial online, email or telephone consultations are always free of charge.
