Joel van Wyk
Self proclaimed jack of all trades, Joel got his introduction to the art world with gavel in hand, as an auctioneer after majoring in strategic management and international business back home in South Africa. He then turned his sights to the international gallery and art fair world, working as a gallery director and travelling to numerous art fairs around the country. While back in Cape Town, he also assisted as a street art curatorial consultant for the new world class, Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, which opened in 2017.
