Patrons Art Gallery is an art business organization, formally known as System Arts Gallery; our organisation represents the business interests of over 10 artists in Nigeria, including masters & contemporary Nigerian artists. In addition, we have a vast network of artists whom are on our commission.

Today, Patrons Art Gallery has handled international art exhibitions in Italy, Germany, Paris, Dubai and U.S.A, yet we retain our traditional commitment to the local knowledge, professional expertise and personal service upon which our clients have relied for so long. We never lose sight of what art collection means to the individuals or organisations involved and take infinite pains to help bring the process to a pleasing conclusion.

 For some collectors, it can all begin with a casual browse through of our website or catalogue. But whether you are a potential collector or just share our enthusiasm for good art, we are sure you will find our collections interesting and thought provoking. And if you would like a special commission for a residential or corporate project we would be more than glad to help you from conception to actualization of your dreams.

In 2002 Patrons Art Gallery in collaboration with African Cultural Heritage (an N.G.O) listed and coordinated African artist for the first Caterina de Medici International Painting Competition/Award, Florence, Italy where two of our resident artists emerged with Silver and bronze medal.

In 2009, we repeated this by positioning Samuel Ebohon, a Nigerian born artist for the Caterina de Medici International Painting Competition/ Award in Florence, Italy, where the artist emerged as the best artist in the competition with a gold medal and a cash prize.
