Presentation
LITTY | contemporary is the continuation of ODA | fine art. Patrizia Helene Litty studied fine art in Munich, Germany. She emigrated to South Africa in 1994. Patrizia created her first start-up, A1Design, in 1998, a dedicated web & graphic design firm. She opened ODA | fine art, a traditional brick and mortar art gallery in 2011.

This online platform showcases contemporary art from the African continent, facilitates global access to curated, virtual exhibitions. We collaborate with specialized logistic companies that ensure secure packaging and delivery of art, worldwide.

We work closely with the artists that we showcase, to organize online art auctions as well as art sales, which enable artists to present their work at a flexible price level and offer opportunities for collectors to acquire art at reduced prices.

We wish to create an environment of trust and transparency for the participating artists, as well as for collectors, while maintaining the highest level of professional service.

Litty | contemporary represents some 30 artists from different African countries: South Africa, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Mozambique, Uganda, Nigeria, Mali, Cameroon….
Our overall aim is to create international exposure for participating artists and support their individual careers.

In addition to the online presentation, we organize exhibitions, either in our brick and mortar partner gallery or pop up locations and participate in top-level art fairs.

Last but not least, a percentage of revenue is channeled towards the “Litty Artist Fund”. The fund was created by Patrizia Litty in 2016. It creates monetary support to artists in financial distress. The fund contributes to the cost of international art fairs. To date, it has facilitated Art Madrid fair and START art fair, London. The fund acquires art in order to ease cash flow issues that artists might face. Payment of studio rentals and art residencies as well as assistance with visa applications and air travel costs are part of the multi faceted activities.
