Promoting investment in African Arts

Your art collection starts here

We are your gateway to the young and diversified cultural mosaic of Africa.

We leapfrog the careers of the artists we work with by giving them access to opportunities, places, markets and audiences that they do not have in their own countries, resulting in their value increasing within the international art market.

“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.
