“Look harder” – Yoda

LowBrow magic

I can’t touch it. I can’t point at it and say: “There it is!”

There is magic in art. All art. Written, drawn, painted, illustrated, sketched, printed, music, audio, performance, there is magic in that. Creating is something I do even if I don’t believe I have any talent to do anything I do. I also believe that making something is the only way you can make the next thing better. It’s also because making zines, writing stories, drawing and painting makes me feel like a kid again.

South African Artist

I am a South African artist currently living and working in Pretoria, South Africa. Creating what many describe as minimalist art, my art evokes emotions and feelings in the viewer by confronting topics like death, love, lust, and the overall human experience in a world that is evolving technologically much faster than we are able to evolve.

My work has strong illustrative elements and line work that is bold. Inspired by my love for skateboarding, music, and street art, my work often contains symbols and familiar iconography either created by me or that is integrated from my everyday life. I’m excited about my work as a South African contemporary artist, creating works that I want to, while also enjoying collaborations with other artists and commission work that peaks to my interests.

“Design is coming to grips with one’s real lifestyle, one’s real place in the world. Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one’s well being.” – Albert Hadley
