OUR STORY

THE BRAND

Vic Art was established in January 2020 following a family holiday to Ghana, inspired and amazed by the wonderful and unique arts and crafts viewed at the African Cultural Centre, we commissioned some bespoke art work.

 

Vic Art specialises in African art work ranging from framed art pieces, original canvas bespoke paintings 

(available soon), statuette dolls and home furnishings, all handmade.

 

Based in the UK, Vic Art is an online supplier, however we currently do not have a physical shop. All our wood craft art pieces are handmade from across Africa.

Vic Art intends to promote creativity and original art pieces for everyone to see and own. Each framed art piece has a story, where people from all cultural backgrounds can appreciate and empathise with; this is not specifically targeted to those of African heritage.

 

We would love for you to purchase any piece you desire. A percentage % of each piece sold will be used to help children in Ghana with art work and craft materials, so they can also create art. 

 

At Vic Art, we are passionate about art and it is integral in our ethos to support creativity and talent in our community.
