At Nando's, we see making great tasting food as an art form. So it's no big surprise that we put as much thought into what goes on walls as on the plate.
Since it was started in 2002, the Nando's Art Collection has grown to something in which we take great pride. So much so that the artwork displayed on the walls of our restaurants form the largest collection of South African art outside Africa!
The 5000 works that make up our collection include pieces from undiscovered, emerging and established artists from diverse social and economic backgrounds. This offers opportunity for all artists in South Africa to participate as well as encouraging skills development at every level.
Nando's takes particular interest in young, emerging artists. The support we've been able to give has enabled many individuals to focus full-time on their art and as a result, a growing number have gone on to become established artists.
268 ...artists are behind the collection housed in our restaurants nationwide.
150 ...artists (at least) are involved in The Creative Block Project).
5000 ...pieces of artwork are displayed on the walls of our restaurants.
