First National Bank remains committed to the support of arts and culture as it celebrates all that African contemporary art represents. FNB have been the proud sponsors of the FNB Joburg Art Fair for the past seven years.

In recent years art has become a hotly debated topic in South Africa and has stimulated conversation on more than one occasion. Art has evolved in the modern era to become accessible to the public and easier to comprehend. Gone are the days when art was for niche markets and intimidated those who couldn’t understand it.

As a country we have been blessed with a diverse heritage of cultures that has contributed to the dynamic contemporary art we have showcased at the FNB Joburg Art Fair.

First National Bank has always been passionate about the South African and African contemporary art scene. Together with ARTLOGIC, we endeavour to sustain the support of the arts on our continent.

Our commitment to the Fair will ensure that we continue to introduce South African and African artists to an array of creative individuals and art enthusiasts in South Africa, Africa and globally.

Once again we host the FNB Art Prize. This award will honour the work of one artist nominated by galleries that participate in the Fair.

Congratulations to all the artists exhibiting this year. May you all continue to create, innovate and inspire.

We hope to see you at the FNB Joburg Art Fair where creativity will be brought to life.

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” – Aristotle
