Originally set up as an art-consulting outfit in 2005, TAFETA was re-constituted as a gallery specializing in 20th century and Contemporary African Art in 2013. With a previous background in Financial Services, Ayo Adeyinka, the founder and director, advises and works on behalf of a number of important private and corporate collections of Modern and Contemporary African Art.

Located in Fitzrovia, London, with a project space in Lagos, TAFETA remains the leading purveyors of some of the most important 20th century artists of African descent (Ben Enwonwu MBE, Ablade Glover, Susanne Wenger, Muraina Oyelami, Gebre K. Desta et al.)

Continually seeking out new talent in the contemporary space, TAFETA has also placed younger emerging artists in important private and institutional collections, and is privileged to represent renowned names like Yinka Shonibare MBE on the African continent.
