Having worked in London as a graphic designer and studied at the Royal Academy of Fashion in Antwerp, Belgium, Richard’s work fuses fashion, art and graphic design. Andy Wyeth is the artist name for Nina Torr, a local artist who earned a degree in Fine Arts from Parsons The New School for Design in New York in 2010 and is currently teaching illustration and animation at The Open Window School of Communication.
For ‘We’re never coming home’, Andy’s beautiful illustrations have been reworked and appropriated into a new narrative by Richard then hand-stitched into a zine-like format. A small edition of only a 100 hand crafted books will be available from 8 November. Each of these are individually numbered, gold foiled and signed by the collaborators. 10 of these publications will be available at the launch of Andy’s solo show, An Unnatural History, on 8 Nov from 18h00 at In Toto Gallery in Joburg.
