Next to join the InAWE Residency is Laura Windvogel, aka Lady $kollie. She’s one of the eight local creatives we’ve invited to spend some time at InAWE Stays while working on a piece inspired by Cape Town during the city’s year as World Design Capital.
Born and bred here, Laura has always been fascinated with capturing life in the Mother City through her film photography, which she then translates into what she calls “slightly offensive” watercolour paintings with a sexual undertone. Deviating from her colourful and fruity paintings, Laura worked on an abstract landscape of Cape Town’s city lights during her residency, which was inspired by van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’.
See more of Laura’s watercolours and photographs on her Tumblr.
The InAWE Residency our World Design Capital project in collaboration with InAWE Stays and Nokia. Earlier this year Fort Rixon, Lucie de Moyencourt, Sebastian Borckenhagen, Danielle Clough, Michael Chandler and Jody Paulsen were at the InAWE Residency.
Nokia, a brand synonymous with visual storytelling, provided a Lumia 1520 for the artists at the InAWE Residency to use during their stay. The InAWE Residency videos shot by Josh Hayman were also made possible by Nokia.
