Tribal Art Brokers , established in 2002, is an online gallery in Sydney catering to the needs of both Australian and international collectors.
Our primary goal is to offer buyers of tribal art and tribal beadwork living outside Australia direct access to artworks offered for sale from Australian private collections, while acting as consignment vendors for Australian collectors.
Australia is part of the Pacific, close to the source of Oceanic art, and this area is the primary focus of most Australian collections. At the same time, Australians come from very diverse cultural backgrounds, and our web site reflects this by offering a wide selection of tribal art from South East Asia and Africa, catalogued by region and sub region, and by type of objects – such as body adornments, weapons or canoe art.
The site also hosts the only specialist tribal beadwork selling site in Australia, featuring beadwork from Africa, South East Asia and the world.
Tribal Art Brokers publishes two blogs, a tribal art blog titled Praise Tribal and a tribal beadwork blog named My Beady Eye, both accessible from this website.
In addition to operating the on line gallery, Tribal Art Brokers can also act as a Buyers Agent for overseas collectors wishing to bid on Australian auctions. This service includes provision of condition reports, bidding, collection, packing and shipping of purchased lots David Said, the principal of Tribal Art Brokers, has been an enthusiastic tribal art and tribal beadwork collector for more than 30 years and has an extensive private collection. He retired as the Honorary Editor of the Oceanic Art Society Newsletter in 2012 after filling this position for 15 years, during which time he wrote and researched many articles on tribal art.
