aRt27 Gallery

-upcycled art-

South Africa



aRt 27 Gallery – upcycled art - started in August 2010 in Dwarskersbos on the Cape West Coast. The pieces are mainly singular (once-off) and are made of metal, wood and glass.

aRt 27 previously ran a similar and very successful business in Groot-Marico, North West Province and is now based in Port Alfred, Eastern Cape.


The redundant metal and wood are mainly sourced from scrap metal merchants, building sites, farms, family, friends and acquaintances. The materials are upcycled into either singular pieces or innovative reproducible products. The pieces and products are functional by nature and mainly designed for indoor use. By utilizing mostly redundant materials, aRt27 Gallery leaves a lower carbon footprint than buying new or recycled metal.


Every sculpture and functional piece is unique in that it is not exactly reproducible.  (However, similar items may be commissioned.) These designs have been exhibited worldwide, and are regular features at design/decor/home/green expo's.


aRt27 Gallery gives New Life – “Creating dividends from debris and assets from ashes"




The vision of the artist is to create an environment where the workplace becomes a think-tank for new and creative ideas and inventions, with upcycling as a priority.



These products are all handmade, from redundant metal and reclaimed wood.

1.    Unique pieces – sculptured furniture, sculptures, functional décor.

2.    Reproducible pieces ie. Drum chairs and other drum designs, also rocking chair and bow chairs.
