Ian Stewart Shaw has been dealing in the Arts of Africa for more than 20 years. First introduced to African Tribal Art by two Glasgow Artists in the 1980’s finding the mix of traditional cultures and the aesthetics of the objects fascinating. The appeal of Tribal objects is not confined to the collector. Tribal objects and Textiles compliment minimal backgrounds in many contemporary interior design concepts. Our Interior Design clients contact us regularly looking for inspiration and innovation.
