For me i guess you could say this is where it all start i remember drawing this out of curiosity... and the people around me kept asking why dont pursue career in this and my answer was simple i wasnt good enough, since then ive learnt that its better to let the people decide because if something you can do can add joy or some type of value in someone else's life then its you responsibility to share it.... art hle toli ... #stilllife #artist #artists #art #saartist #saart #saartists #southafricanart #southafricanartist #southafricanartist #pencil #pencils #drawing #pencildrawing #drawingpencil #wine #wineglass #capetownmag #capetownlife #capetownart #capetownartist #capetownvibes #capetown #ambads #art2b

The @ipaf_festival_sa at @jadedewaal was truly a highlight of last month's International Public Art Festival, a gathering of very special people and some close friends of mine. • BACKGROUND: ➡️ IPAF's main objective in Salt River was to showcase the power of public art and it's positive impact on communities. • Personally, when I started to take on responsibility for @bazart_ngo's and @ipaf_festival_sa's Social Media and assist with PR, I was extremely critical, so I decided to observe the whole thing closely. All to often I witnessed white folks entering communities with little to no consideration for social and cultural dynamics, not to mention the disastrous effects of gentrification in Woodstock and Salt River over the past years. Yet, working at the festival this year, gave me a deeper insight in what's really happening in Salt River during IPAF. It was actually eye-opening. I learned how important it is to take a close look and observe before judging. When it comes to gentrification, people, including myself tend to judge prematurely. I also learned that sometimes things aren't as black and white as they appear to be. Although I can sympathize with critics for obvious reasons, I can confidently say that witnessing Baz-Art's influence in Salt River was truly beautiful and touched my heart. What I saw was really no "white saviors" trampling through Salt River like Elephants in a Porcelain shop - I met many members of the community who genuinely loved the fact that people would come from the outside to create art with and most importantly for them and to beautify the area. And the street art, which we created did certainly not negatively affect any property prices! The local and international artists engaged in meaningful creative dialogues and Baz-Art once again created many opportunities for commissioned work for artists. All of these factors impressed and convinced me and I'd like to express my gratitude to @melissacucci @de_sani and Alex for granting me the opportunity to be part of this purposeful journey.

Faces BY KAHLIL GIBRAN I have seen a face with a thousand countenances, and a face that was but a single countenance as if held in a mould. I have seen a face whose sheen I could look through to the ugliness beneath, and a face whose sheen I had to lift to see how beautiful it was. I have seen an old face much lined with nothing, and a smooth face in which all things were graven. I know faces, because I look through the fabric my own eye weaves, and behold the reality beneath.

There are layers of people that they will never voluntarily show to us unless we force it out of them... or a situation does⠀ ⠀ The way people embody the rawest emotions that they feel in those moments when they are no longer careful and stop themselves from truly showing their face, the one they always subdue because they think others will think a certain way of them...⠀ ⠀ When I am angry I can’t help but scream.⠀ When I am sad I can’t help but shout.⠀ When I am happy all I want to do is laugh.⠀ ⠀ But what I have the most to say, that’s when I keep quiet...⠀ ⠀ ⠀ There’s something about having a meeting in your mind with the parts of you you know exist but are too afraid to tell people about.⠀ ⠀ This is my ‘mad corner’ , they say that creative people are a little mad and I totally agree⠀ ⠀ I get tired but I literally unable to stop myself from continuously being me...⠀ ⠀ Picture @jhumblephotography

• An area of my art that I am starting to both enjoy and experiment more with time, is Abstract Art. • Being a detailed artist by nature and coming from a more realist and figurative background, it has been a process to create and breakdown marks and pieces of color, especially charcoal into abstracted artworks. • This big piece - 1700 x 1100 mm unframed, is a mixed media of charcoal, gesso and pastel on 300 gram Arches watercolor paper. • I have titled it - ‘Landscape with trees’, but perhaps you can see something different in the work. • This piece is for sale, please contact me via messenger for more details •
