MOST RECENT COLLABORATIONS

UNDISCOVERED CANVAS X AFFINITY ART GALLERY, LAGOS, NIGERIA


Full ducumentary done by POP Central Channel 189 DSTV on the exhibition created by Undiscovered Canvas and Affinity Art Gallery in Lagos, Nigeria.
Featuring sculptural and installation works by Nigerian artist Adams Anne alongside paintings by South African artist Lulama ‘Wolf’ Mlambo.

A Vernacular Homage to Architecture and Design highlights the importance of tradition, heritage, design and sustainability. The exhibition focuses on the social functions and information passed down through generations by African matriarchs, outside of a globalized modern commercial practice. The Anne Adams Lulama “Wolf” Mlambo artist’s take the viewers back in time when art existed out of the necessity of who people were, their lifestyles, culture, spiritualism, and when humanity was intertwined in a rhythmic dance with nature.Using vernacular techniques and textures Anne’s works incorporate structure, design, and authentic Nigerian symbols adapted from Nsibidi and Mbari art. The use of symmetry in her works is a harmonious display of interactions with balance and indigenous design. Her works are intimate, familiar, and a representation of abundance and harmony which tell stories about the origins and belonging of Africans.

UNDISCOVERED CANVAS X ARTFORM FACTORY, JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

This event has come through a collaboration of two different segments in the overall fine art industry value chain.
Nomaza is an art dealer who makes African contemporary art available to the global market and Monalisa a conservation framer which plays the part of ensuring that private collectors investment art pieces are handled and framed with integrity using only the best conservation materials of the industry.
This event brings together the sales part of the art industry as well as the processes after the sale which are conservation framing and hanging. Through this event we want to educate and reiterate the importance of art dealing and how the different segments play an integral role in the value chain of the fine arts industry. Although many work in silos we find that it is more beneficial to integrate to solidify knowledge and offer our end clients the best and easiest customer service.

MARTELL X UNDISCOVERED CANVAS

Undiscovered Canvas was chosen by Martell for their "Martell Home Encounters" serie, which explores the unexpected stories of audacious and inspiring individuals that challenge conventions and shake up their own field with bold and creative ideas that have a positive impact in today's world.

“Undiscovered Canvas has taken my understanding of African Art and Culture to a whole new level. Nomaza’s joy and passion for her mission is utterly contagious and her carefully curated artistic collections illustrate the same qualities in her artists.  Each artist in her portfolio has a unique style and medium yet all demonstrate incredible talent, a compelling narrative and stunning aesthetic – it’s the perfect combination! I feel strongly that art and culture are a vital pathway to understanding and empathy and I challenge anyone not to improve either of these characteristics within themselves after an encounter with Nomaza and her artists.

Tracey Brown MD Flight Logistics Group LONDON

Meeting Nomaza and working with Undiscovered Canvas has been both enlightening and delightful! She has an amazing amount of positive energy which she brings to every project. Despite her deep sense of professionalism and hard work, you still walk away, after an encounter with Undiscovered Canvas, with a feeling as though it was a very personal and uplifting experience, the way you do after visiting an old friend! Her love for African Talent is contagious and has left us yearning for more Undiscovered young talent from the continet!

Kgomotso Moloantoa CEO HM Pitje Foundation SOUTH AFRICA

Boundless energy, and a passion for Art and Africa which breaks down even the hardest walls, that is what Nomaza and her baby Undiscovered Canvas represents. It is a rare thing and always fascinating to meet an art curator who not only embodies the very essence of what he or she is "selling", but also cares deeply about the clients experience and pockets; as well as the growth of African artists, not just those she represents but all African Art in general. I am lucky to be amongst the very first clients of Undiscovered Canvas, and I remain a very happy client.
