Art Consultation & Advisory

Consultation for Artists and Collectives

At The Rafiki Gallery, we are passionate about equipping artists with the skills and knowledge they need to develop their individual practices and navigate the professional market.

Initial call

Our first call is for us to get to know and understand each other. Always free.


From this point we jointly choose whether we are the right fit for each other.


We will support you in developing the areas of your practice you are struggling with, be it your digital media presence or sense of artistic direction.


Following the end of our consultation, we offer 2 months of continued support, during which we can address your questions and concerns.

''Leo from The Rafiki Gallery has been a wonderful mentor, guiding me through the early stages of my art career. His passion for art and expertise of the evolving art world have been indispensable in building my confidence to use social media to showcase my work. I cannot recommend Leo enough for offering emerging artists the motivation they need to break into the art scene. I’m so grateful to have been able to work with him.''
Katherine Hughes
"It was a pleasure have a session with Leo from the Rafiki Gallery. He arranged a call after I reached out asking for some advice in terms of advancing my art career. It was a very refreshing and insightful consultation and I urge any other aspiring artist to do the same. Thanks again Leo!"

Art Advisory for Collectors and Industry

The role of the gallery for collectors is a varied one. In our advisory role we work to use our connections in the contemporary art industry to connect and source exceptional artwork for local and international collectors and businesses. 


We delve into upcoming auctions, exhibitions and  artists studios to find the work you are looking for.


We guide you through the process, ensuring a smooth experience. Acting as intermediary if required.


From shipping and insurance to framing and conservation we are here to ensure the best practice for you.


Further to this, we will help organise your collection with full cataloging and ensure sustainable and ethical collections.

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Leo from Rafiki Gallery. When I moved to Edinburgh I was searching for a unique painting by a local artist for my new flat. Leo provided an incredible experience and was vigilant in finding exactly what I was looking for. His level of professionalism and knowledge was incredible. I highly recommend working with him!”
"When we decided to buy some artwork, Leo not only sourced some wonderful pieces, but he broadened our horizons, guiding us to artists and genres that we wouldn't have otherwise considered. He has an extensive knowledge of both traditional and contemporary artists which gave us great confidence in his suggestions. What was particularly helpful, was his ability to listen to and respond to our needs. We equally appreciated his personal connections with artists as this gave us a more intimate insight into the artist's studio. His passion and energy are infectious and we will certainly be coming back for more!"
