Cape Town - African art accounts for about $1bn (about R12bn) of the total global top-end art market valued at about $75bn, according to the South Africa 2018 Wealth Report released by AfrAsia Bank and New World Wealth last week. About $450m (about R5.5bn) of the top-end African art is held in South Africa.
AfrAsia Bank and New World Wealth list six SA artists whose works they expect could fetch prices similar to those of the top local artists in the near future. They are Adrian Boshoff, Stefan Ampenberger, Branko Dimitrov, Roberto Vaccaro (sculpture), and Portchie and Isabel le Roux.
She is one of the most prolific artists in South Africa. Isabel has been painting professionally since 1974 and has held more than 50 solo exhibitions locally as well as overseas.

The beauty and excitement of my surroundings often inspire my creativity, but I strive to paint more expressionistic and to be more in tune with my feelings than with reality.

A first impression of her art is vibrancy. The courageous use of colour adds to the expressionistic quality of emotion and feeling. She paints life and creates her paintings in the journey of her own life.
