Illustration representation company Alexander’s Band and Joburg-based gallery Kalashnikovv recently co-curated an exhibition of illustration with .M Contemporary art gallery in Woollahra, Sydney, Australia. Founder of Alexander’s and an illustrator herself, Emma Cook, was approached by gallery director Michelle Paterson back in June to select South African illustrators for .M Contemporary’s summer show, The Path Less Deconstructed. She says, “It’s been a manic but exciting few months getting everything organised and the resulting artworks are unbelievable. Everyone worked incredibly hard on their pieces and the resulting collection is an awesome example of the talent in this country. I’m incredibly proud to have worked with this group of artists.”
The exhibition opens this Saturday, the 14th of December 2013, featuring 50 illustrators from around the world. Illustrators were invited to submit an original single edition print to the show.
The participating SA artists include: Gerhard Human, Rikus Ferreira, Si Maclennan, Robyn Mitchell, Frank Conradie, Muti, Adrie le Roux, Simon Berndt, David Maclennan, Hylton Warburton, Brandt Botes, Adam Hill, Rudi De Wet, Linsey Levendall, Alice Edy, Joey Hi-Fi, Hanno van Zyl, Kent Andreasen, Tanya Page, Love and Hate, Stefan Naude, Jean de Wet, Paul Senyol, Cuss, Sindiso Nyoni, Shane de Lange, Megabonanza, Givan Lotz, Marcel Marcel, Jana Hamman, Lazi Mathebula, Niall Bingham and Jana Hamman.
