30 Jun Adam Black
Humour and a touch of playfulness underpin the works of 23-year-old animator and illustrator Adam Black.
Having recently graduated from a degree in UI/UX design, Black already has a Vimeo Staff Pick under his belt for his animation work ‘How To Be Rad’, and boasts features and interviews with international publications such as Ballpitmag and It’s Nice That. He’s also the creative talent behind this year’s BAYEZA trailer!
With a childhood spent moving between various places in Southern Africa, the artist would later live in Nottingham, UK, where he’d discover his passion for illustration and storytelling. His work, simply executed with a strong use of narrative, is seeing Black gain attention both locally and abroad. Having recently graduated, the artist is based in Cape Town where he lives and works, and is proving to be one of South Africa’s most exciting and ambitious creative talents.
