Africa: 'the next China' for contemporary art

A piece by late Nigerian sculptor Ben Enwonwu is displayed during an exhibition of African art by Bonhams in Lagos on April 22, 2015Giles Peppiatt, from Bonhams in London, had good reason to make the trip to Nigeria’s financial capital, Lagos, for the auction house’s next sale of African art — a glut of potential buyers. On a recent visit, he described Africa as “one of our hottest properties on the art block”. “In some ways, Africa is the new China when it comes to art,” he added. Bonhams has blazed a trail in the sector, having organised its first “Africa Now” sale of modern and contemporary African art in 2007, which has since become an annual event.
