Wezart is an online marketplace for African Art. We aim to be leading marketplace which captures the new age identity of Africa.
In South Africa, Artists find it difficult to build their business.

Wezart is a platform that allows the collector to determine the price and demand. Wezart helps Artists to price their work by setting a base price for every artwork but allowing collectors to determine the value of the artwork. The base price is determined by an algorithm that uses an image recognition software to determine if the product is a duplicate, and how rare it is. Then the minimum value for the Artwork is set. Collectors then auction for the work
