/A SPACE IN BETWEEN is a group exhibition of mid-career painters whose explorations of the figure span a wide range of techniques, mediums and aesthetics, blurring the line between fine art, street art and urban art.
These five artists are from very different backgrounds and are all pushing the boundaries of their chosen craft to express a strong voice and vision through their work. Each one at the middle of his career, these artists remain passionate about the journey as well as the end result.
The artists are:
Christiaan Conradie (SA)
Dathini Mzayiya (SA)
Elicser Elliott (CDN)
Franco ‘Jaz’ Fasoli (AR)
Trot Lovegates aka ‘Other’ (CAN)
