I’ve been out of touch with the south african art scene. But during the time i was back, i went to a couple of shows, and snuck around in the back …. it was fun times. It inspired me. Anyway i thought id just share a favourites… starting off with Frank van Reenen, whose show i did not actually attend but wished i had! His fun sculptures conjure up memories of childhood and fantasyscapes. I really like their solid pudgyness and flat colours.
He lives in Cape Town, and you can see more of his work here:
