The show by Hannie, tells the story about a woman, Katie Williams, who through music and storytelling allows the audience into her life.

Synopsis

Katie Williams grew up in a very typical coloured community on the Cape Flats. She has always been different from a young age and when she realises she has feelings for the same sex, she confesses this to her family. The information is not taken lightly, to such an extent that a male relative trying to “fix Katie”, decides to rape her. Find all the show details below…

This just in… Huffington Post recently called Faith47, whose work often has a very spiritual and supernal feel, “better than Banksy”. No offence to the journos at Huffington Post or Faith47 but I don’t think they understand art – Banksy is Banksy there’ll be no other Banksy he’s a pioneer like no other, non the less this bold statement may help attract even more attention to her upcoming solo show in New York in November at Jonathan Levine.

Now back to film… South African artist Faith47 and director Dane Dodds have released Landfill Meditation, a collaborative video inspired by Faiths street paste series of broken down cars.

Landfill Meditation doesn’t chronicle the creation of the murals but rather contextualises them, linking Faith47’s abandoned cars to other objects and spaces once loved and desired, then later discarded.

“This project is reflecting on the notion of progress and the waste that it leaves behind,” says Faith47. “This is about integrating the worst parts of ourselves and acknowledging the damage we do to the planet as a whole.”

Landfill Meditation makes for uncomfortable viewing: rather than the usual postcard view of Cape Town or Johannesburg, Dane’s camera lingers on unsettling imagery of rats and rubbish, decomposing birds and derelict, hijacked buildings.

“We cannot separate ourselves clean and perfect from the trash we dump out back,” says the video’s voiceover, adapted from Native American author Gerald Vizenor’s short story collection, Landfill Meditation. “Being clean is a delusion.”

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.

Gavin Rain reads between the lines of society and, with the use of celebrity/societal icons, manifests a subtle point of view for the onlooker, allowing the imagination to delve into a world within a world. You will get the whole picture and sometimes only the subtext of his mathematical work. Nonetheless, the work of this artist is intricately beautiful and is nearly too expensive for the South African art society/market – each painting sells for a R1000 a centimeter.

This fine artist set out to iconize the freedom fighter Aung San Suu Kyi. Unfortunately, it takes more than a painting to turn an individual into an icon. His work is sincere, and he is always seeking perfection in every piece. Gavin is learned about the history and evolution of man and art, which is apparent in the journey and workmanship of his craft.

Pointillism –  a term born out of ridicule (during the time of the eiffel tower opening) to certain artists but now is a revered technique that involves the eye and mind of the artist to blend divided circular colour spots into a fuller image. This results in a mosaic like treat for the viewer, who can, depending on the artist, get lost in the painting and vivid spots of colour.

One can certainly get lost in the work of Gavin Rain, a Cape Town based artist who was prominent in the 2012 and 2013 Venice Biennale. To view his work visit, WorldArt 54 Church Street near Green Market Square.

Kilmany Jo Liversage studied fine art in Bloemfontein South Africa. She is now a Cape Town based fine artist. With massive graffiti influence, she “tags” each one of her canvas works, which holds a significantly higher monetary value than tagging a street wall. One of her graffiti heroine’s is the infamous Faith 47.

Kilmany’s work seems to be most popular in European countries, and is making a predominant impression in France.

The wild side of Liversage manifests in the bold portraits of her sensual and flirtatious subject matter. While her interest for fashion is authentic and beautifully portrayed in her studio work, she is also attracted to engaging with a wider audience through sidewalk/street art.

Dion Cupido, a mixed material fine artist, hails from the streets of Michells Plain, Cape Town, where he would graffiti the walls for no return.

He has certainly come a long way; Cupido’s art has captured the attention of prolific American recording artist and actress Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter. This makes complete sense as his work delves into the soul of the female form.

Cupido’s art is layered, deep, and thought provoking. While observing  the South African artist’s work, one could easily be completely submerged into another realm of material existence.
