Aspire Art Auctions is a South African-based, specialist auctioneering company exclusively focusing on historical, modern and contemporary art. With collective art industry experience of more than eighty years, Art Specialists Emma Bedford, Jacqui Carney, Mary-Jane Darroll, Ruarc Peffers and Marelize van Zyl produce curated live and online auctions of top-quality international, African and South African art.

Please note that all sales of the contemporary artworks are subjected to Artist Resale Rights (ARR). Aspire Art Auctions is the first and, to date, the only auction house in South Africa to pay living South African artists royalties on the resale of their works on its auctions.  In the absence of legislation, Aspire voluntarily covers the cost of the ARR percentage fee.

The ARR initiative is an investment back into the industry, acknowledging the value of authorship and ensuring support for artists. To date, Aspire Art Auctions has paid almost R400 000 in royalties to more than 90 South African artists.
