Who we are and what we do

 Jo Anke online is focused on providing clients with some of the best South African contemporary paintings. Since we are in the business of timeless beauty, we want nothing more than for you to acquire a collection you are proud to show off too; and with the support of our physical space in Johannesburg, we are able to provide a personalized art buying solution for individuals locally and internationally. And while we are all about status and sophistication, our collection explores a variety of African contemporary themes from social commentary, pop culture or politics to satisfying an appetite for craftsmanship.

Original artworks from the best emerging contemporary artists.


We are really excited to share our partnership with contemporary artist and activist Ayanda Mabulu. Ayanda is mainly known for some of his political paintings that depict South African politicians in the nude, including President Jacob Zuma, Nelson Mandela and Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. One thing you cannot ignore about Ayanda’s artwork is the fact that it is by no means for the faint hearted. He towers above all artistic and moral protocol to create iconic pieces that are entirely delivered in their African splendor; there's lots of humor, darkness and hope, when you take a closer look at his artwork. Read more from the blog. To arrange a private viewing of his new artworks, send an email to New artworks coming soon online – be the first to know.


Art collection is not for the faint heart, you must really be passionate with a desire for politics or making money. Browse and buy from a collection of our fine obsessions.


Of course this is our client's happiest moments - another rare find, another rare African story to share. We travel across South Africa to find that one of a kind artist. And since we update our collection on a regular basis, you're bound to find something that's just right for you. Young artists, big adventures.
