About the Artworks and the artists

We select only professional artists (self-taught or academical ones) who have exhibition records locally or internationally. They choose the works they want to sell. Nevertheless, we do moderate the content and it is possible that we may remove a work if its authenticity is questioned.

All of our artists are well recognized in their country of residence. We identify these artists across the globe, so we can offer you a diverse, high-quality international selection of artworks from afro-centric artists. To find out more about our selection criteria!

Are you an artist? Please feel free to apply through this page. We respond to all applications.

All the works on ARTKOFA are original artworks; they are not reproduced and further editions are not published by the artist (especially in the case of photography).

An edition is when there are several copies of a work, such as in photography. An edition is the specific number of copies that has been created by the artist before the first sale, and this number will not change. For photographs, an established artist generally has an edition size of about 10 while a young photographer may have a larger edition size. In general, the smaller the edition size, the higher the price. At ARTKOFA, we limit the number of copies to 50 editions, in order to maintain exclusivity in the artworks you purchase.

All artworks for sale on ARTKOFA come with a certificate of authenticity (COA) that is signed by the artist. Furthermore, all editions (photographs, prints etc.) are numbered, marked and signed by the artist.

You can also buy your works with an NFC chip that uses blockchain technology to authenticate your purchased artworks from your mobile phone, upon request. Contact us if you want one.

Not always, as sometimes they have already been sold! If the work has been sold, this is indicated on the artwork page. If you are unable to find another work that you love, do not hesitate to get in touch as we can suggest other works by our artists who are not online yet. Some of our artists also accept commissions!


Services offered by ARTKOFA

Absolutely. Sometimes the artist has already chosen a frame, which we can send you a photo of.

If the work is not framed, when you make a purchase, we will provide you a list of professionals to frame your new artworks in your city.

Just let us know that you want the work framed and we will make sure we find the perfect local partner for you.

When the artwork is already framed, then the frame is a part of the work and therefore included in the price.
When the work is unframed, ARTKOFA will always ensure to suggest you a list of partners, making sure that the cost of the frame is within your budget by 

Our role is to introduce collectors to an artist’s works. But you need to look through lots of artworks to make this happen, and we can help you save time!
We can offer you a personalised selection of about twenty works which are chosen especially for you. To receive this selection, you can contact us at and we’ll get back to you within 48 hours.

Not at all – it is a key part of our mission to introduce collectors to new artworks.

It’s a great idea to give art as a gift! However, it can be tricky to choose an artwork for another person, even if you know them well.
There are two options to help you give a unique gift:

  • we can talk about the person you want to give art to, and think about what they like and what would suit their home. Then we can offer you a personalised selection within your budget. Contact us  here.
  • The other option: give them a Gift Card for an amount of your choice. With each gift card, we offer one hour of personalised advice, to help them choose an artwork they’ll love.

Buying art with ARTKOFA

If you have an artist name in mind, you can search for them on our artists page.
If there are no results, leave us your details. We take all searches on our site into account and we will contact artists whose works interest our users. If the artist joins ARTKOFA, we will let you know straight away.

This symbol allows you to choose the artworks you love while you’re on the site, so you can find them all on one single page. To see this, click on the heart on the main menu. To make sure your favourites are saved and so that you can see them on another device, we recommend creating an account.

The dimensions of the work are specified on the artwork page. Any further questions? Please get in touch – we’re here to help and we can send you images to give you a better idea of the dimensions of the work.

The image is an accurate depiction of the artwork, but it has no contract value. We can send you additional images on request.
If the artwork you ordered is not what you expected, we are incredibly sorry. You have 14 days to return the work after its delivery.
Feel free to take a look at our client feedback. They often tell us that the work is even more beautiful in real life!

To buy an artwork, you have to click on the button “Acquire this artwork” which is found on all artwork pages. You will then be redirected to your Cart. Once you have clicked ‘Proceed’, we will ask for your details to organise delivery, and then ask you to choose your method of payment (card, Paypal, or call us for bank transfers). Once the payment has been processed, you will receive confirmation from our payment processor, Stripe. We will then call you right away to confirm that your payment has been received.

All credit and debit cards (Mastercard, Visa, American Express etc.), Paypal and bank transfer.

You can also pay in installments using Klarna.

Once the payment has been processed, the artwork is reserved for you! We will call you right away to confirm its availability and delivery times (delivery takes approximately 7 days). Together we will arrange the best day for delivery to the address you provided.

Your credit card will be charged at the time of checkout when you confirm your purchase. This is the point when your payment is authorized and processed by our payment gateway. Please note that if you are using a debit card, the payment may be immediately deducted from your account balance.

Of course. Before the work has been shipped, you can cancel your order by email. Once it’s been shipped, the cancellation period begins 14 days after delivery. If the work has been shipped, we will only refund you once the work has been returned to the artist in its original condition.
