Bryan Reeves has been dealing in African tribal art for over three decades, progressing from a market stall on Portobello Road in the early 1990's to a long-established gallery located in Ladbroke Grove, Nottinghill, London.
Throughout this time he has been constantly refining his eye and evolving his taste. The primary qualities that he searches for in a piece are: age/authenticity, provenance, presence, form, and patina.
Bryan was one of the founding members of 'Tribal Art London' (formally 'Tribal Perspectives') which has developed into the leading tribal art fair in the UK and a major event on the international tribal art calendar.
Over the years, he has travelled extensively throughout Africa and settled in Tanzania for an extended period. This has led to him developing a keen interest and knowledge in traditional art from East Africa.
Besides selling to the general art enthusiast, Bryan has also helped build many private tribal art collections both in the UK and abroad. He has sold to leading museums around the world including the Metropolitan Museum in New York. He exhibits annually in San Francisco, Amsterdam, and London.
He is always looking to buy pieces from collections in the UK and abroad.
