Tatu Gallery is an online platform that showcases and supports different works of art from artists from emerging markets in Africa. At Tatu gallery we are providing a global platform for rising artists and investing in local art communities. As you may know from your own work, there is a growing community of artists across Africa who struggle to find sufficient outlets where they can share their work.  We want to give artists the opportunity to have their voices heard by a global audience.


As always, your thoughts, feelings, and opinions are very important. Please feel free to email us at with any questions or suggestions on how we may better serve you.


Thank you
