African Cartel – a marketplace for African Artists

It has been months in the making, but it is with great pride and excitement that I can finally announce the launch of our latest website venture –

Ours being my wife, Xenia and cousin Hugh. African Cartel hopes to be a market place for African Artists – discovering, showcasing and marketing their work and biography to a global market.

We launch with a feature on the Robot Artists, watch the short film to find out more about this creative, humble bunch of mainly Zimbabwean artists.

The site built on top of the powerful content builder and Listings directory theme of WooThemes, with Cart66 integration.

Update: African Cartel has been picked up by CNN and is been featured as a cover story.
