Makiwa Gallery Franschhoek

Makiwa Gallery Franschhoek is known to our growing number of local and international art enthusiasts. On show is an ever changing selection of breathtakingly beautiful paintings by the eminent artist/ owner Makiwa Mutomba and other renowned South African artists. Portraits, wildlife, landscapes, monochromes and sculptures form part of our on-going exhibitions. We invite you to join us and experience the beauty, creative journey and visual delight that our artworks provide the viewer, to a depth that touches ones soul.

Makiwa states, “I paint pictures to give hope, joy and meaning to the lives of those who see them. For beauty, I believe, is abounding in all creation.”

If Franschhoek is the rainbow, Makiwa Gallery is the pot of gold at the end of it.

We are situated in the centre of town inside the Pick n Pay Daily Centre, 23 Main Road.

Open from Monday to Sunday 9:30 – 17:30
