Atang Tshikare cannot be easily defined. His work is a combination of many different art mediums of which an aspect eventually culminates into canvas fine art.

He takes part influence from his dad, a prolific South African journalist and artist as well South African born Nikhil Singh, and the great American contemporary artist Jean Michel Basquiat.

Mr Tshikare is the recipient of the Future Found Award 2014 he has also been celebrated as an “Emerging Creative” in 2012 hosted by the Design Indaba.

Atang’s mom lends him some of her business know-how, as he is the founder of his own banner called Zabalazaa. Atang Tshikare’s (love that name) canvas art can be found at WorldArt in Cape Town.

This young artist has his first solo exhibition at the Turbine Hall Art Fair in Newtown Johannesburg from 18 – 20 July 2014. Check out this awesome interview for a more personal insight to this proud and promising South African artist.
