Guns and Rain

Founded in 2014 to address the under-representation of African artists online and on the international art scene, Guns & Rain works with emerging visual artists from 6 African countries, including South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique and Nigeria. Having held regular events and exhibitions in Johannesburg since 2015, the gallery now has a permanent space in Parkhurst, Johannesburg.  For those across the oceans, we offer prompt and informed advisory to help collectors find African art that they love, and we deliver it anywhere you like.


The name ‘Guns & Rain’ comes from the acclaimed work of South African-born British anthropologist and playwright David Lan, for its reference to nature, culture, identity, land, struggle, change and other important African themes. Guns & Rain is committed to fair, mindful and ethical trade
