about us

Bonne Esperance Gallery is an invitation to discover the creative exuberance of South Africa.

Located in the centre of Paris, at 3 rue Notre Dame de Bonne Nouvelle in the 2nd arrondissement, the gallery exhibits both emerging and established artists working in the fields of art, design and craft.

From Cape Town to Johannesburg, Durban to Pretoria, Bonne Esperance is a dive into the creative geography of South Africa and its neighboring countries Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana and Namibia.

Open to the curious, to amateurs and to collectors, Bonne Esperance Gallery gives a new voice to an art scene that is unique on the African continent for its originality, diversity and openness to the world.

Founded in 2019 by Scott Billy, the gallery offers regular programming showing new and established artists, designers and craftspeople, with exhibits often created by the artists themselves to showcase links between different artists’ work.
