Elise Wessels is a Cape Town based artist who has been very busy lately. Her solo exhibition ‘Beast in Mind’ is currently on show at Salon91 and her artwork was used for the Markus Wormstorm “Not I, but a Friend” album, launched just last Thursday. (Click HERE to download the album completely free! Thanks, Markus.)
Elise first made a name for herself in 2008 after her work was included in the finalist selection of ABSA L’Atelier. Next on her to-do list was to cut her teeth as many of the young and most talented illustrators do at Am I Collective. After two year and a half years in the league of extraordinaries she decided to go her own way at the start of 2011 and join the majors at One League creative management.
By the end of 2011 Elise had completed her Honours in Visual Arts through UNISA and exhibited in various group shows. 2012 sees her move into a studio with fellow freelancers Studio Muti and Carmen Ziervogel.
Take a look at why everyone is talking about her right now.
