Cuperior Collection - Oliver Elst was founded in 2016 and is focussed on Contemporary Emerging Artists from Africa and its diaspora. My target is to build a significant collection of masterpieces by established and emerging contemporary artists in an early stage with a strong and unique character. 

Several pieces have been exhibited at Museum shows and Biennales.  

The word "Cuperior" describes my target and philosophy the best. It is a combination of the latin word

"cupere"/desire  and "prior"/the precursor.
