Born and raised in Africa, Ian Allen, along with his partner and wife Julie, travel back to Africa to hand-select the exotic treasures for their gallery. In addition to their travels, they also represent fine African art collections. The stories they enthusiastically share with each visitor are based on their extensive knowledge and travel experience.

Each piece is accompanied by information pertaining to its history and function, providing a deeper appreciation and understanding of each inspirational work. This adds another dimension to the artworks' aesthetic beauty and bring it to life in your imagination.
