    Within South Africa we courier your artwork to your door - the shipping cost will show at the checkout.

    When shipping art internationally, two primary options are commonly considered: crated and rolled. Crating involves securely packaging the artwork in a custom-built crate, providing maximum protection against physical damage but often resulting in higher shipping costs due to size and weight.
    On the other hand, rolling art involves taking stretched paintings off the frame, carefully wrapping the artwork and placing it in a protective tube. This method is more cost-effective and suitable for flexible pieces.
    Choosing between crating and rolling depends on the specific artwork's size, fragility, and budget, as well as the destination's shipping requirements and regulations.

    We will be in touch regarding the best options for you.

    Virtual hanging of art is an innovative service we offer that allows art enthusiasts and collectors to visualize how artworks will appear in their desired spaces before making a purchase.

    Vuyisile Adoons

    Vuyisile Adoons

    Hailing from the Free State town of Rouxville, Vuyisile Adoons, a 31-year-old South African artist, has emerged as a promising talent. He embarked on his artistic journey at the age of 10 and, upon completing his education, earned a diploma in Art and Design from Central Johannesburg College, with a primary focus on portraiture.
    For several years, Adoons worked as a commissioned artist. However, in 2015, he decided to explore other art forms, such as landscapes and seascapes, which garnered significant demand, recognition, and admiration. Now working as a full-time artist, Adoons is proficient in various mediums but has a preference for oil paints.

    “My artwork often portrays the lifestyles of individuals in rural and semi-rural areas,” Adoons explains. “Beyond portraits, I derive great satisfaction from painting scenes of people tending to cattle. This theme is particularly meaningful to me because I grew up assisting my grandfather with his livestock. I capture these moments with a camera and then transform them into paintings.”
    His objective is to convey narratives that resonate, inspire, and captivate the observer. He strives to showcase our roots while also imparting a message: that even in disadvantaged and impoverished communities, there are uplifting stories waiting to be told.

    In 2017, Adoons exhibited his creations at the National Arts Festival and MACUFE in Bloemfontein. His artistic prowess earned him an invitation to exhibit his work in New York in August 2018, where he achieved considerable success. He has also participated in numerous local and nationwide festivals and exhibitions, including the Tulbagh Arts Festival, and has been featured in prominent newspapers like the “Daily Sun” and “Sunday World.”

    Notably, Adoons has undertaken commissioned portraits of notable public figures in South Africa, including the former Deputy Minister of Arts and Culture, Maggie Sotyu; Free State Premier, Sisi Ntombela; and Free State MEC for Social Development, Mamiki Qabathe.

    In October 2019, Adoons graced the cover of “South African Artist” magazine, with his profile featured within its pages. As a budding young artist, he benefits from the mentorship of Richard Bollers, an established artist in the field.

    Vuyisile Adoons is represented by The Artists Gallery in Cape Town.
