Art Dealer and Advisor
I’ve been an art dealer and advisor in the art industry for more than 25 years, working closely with both established and emerging artists. My passion is about the growth and evolution of art collections in the art world. This passion for connoisseurship and collector motivation has allowed me to become one of the leading dealers and art advisors in contemporary and modern South African art.
What I can offer
- I am an Art Dealer and Advisor who is wholly focused on collections and collecting, whether this is for establishing new collections or enhancing existing ones.
- I help collectors build meaningful collections with quality, sought after paintings of unique value.
- I offer personalised services and assist in all other aspects of building a fine-art collection – from archiving and documentation, to shipping, insurance, storage, framing and installation.
- I encourage debate while facilitating the establishment and enrichment of collections.

“João does not sell pretty art: they are pieces that captivate you and evoke an instant response. You either like a work or you don’t… but once a piece has you, it grabs your hand, takes you on a ride, and won’t let you go.”

“João Ferreira is one of Cape Town’s most knowledgeable and highly regarded names in the art dealer industry, and after my morning with him in his gallery, it is easy to see why.”
