Connecting the Dreamers, The Artists, The Traders, and the little guy with The Seekers and the Customers of the Mother City.

About Us

Who we are

The Mother City Treasure was born in 2018 when a few friends realised that there is so much rich cultural, art, beauty and wonder that wasn’t been seen.

The Mother City is not just our home but the birthplace of Wonder, Ideas, Vision and Dreams. Here in the Mother City you can see Art that has never been seen before, on Buildings, sidewalks, a Canvas of Real Live People! Here you will find places that will take your breath away! You will meet the most amazing People!

Our Mother City is a veritable field of Dreams and Treasures. Our Treasures are not the work of amazing creations being made but the People making them.

We at the MCT (Mother City Treasures), want to help the Dreamers, The Artist, The Traders and the little guy meet up with The Seekers and the Customers out there.

We actively support local Markets, small Businesses and Artists. We want to give them, along with all those that don’t have a Voice, a platform from which they can thrive and reach the World!

We at MCT strive to always seek out and find the Treasures that are hidden in our Amazing Mother City!

Shameema Arnold

“Art has always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I realised early that I wanted to pursue a career in art and went on to study at The College of Cape Town, where I earned my qualification in Art and Design.

It was here that I expanded my knowledge in the History of art, drawing, graphic design, and printmaking. After completing college, I went on to practice graphic design but always found painting as my happy place to get my creative juices flowing.”
