To put this project together, students were taken into the Observatory neighbourhood to draw typical buildings; which were then translated into shapes and in turn translated into the mural designed by Lorenzo....
‘Tretchikoff and Me’ is a salon-style exhibition that shows original archival prints produced under the supervision of Vladimir Tretchikoff while he was still alive alongside new works by emerging and established South African artists that respond to his legacy, creativity and influence...This exhibition aims to fill the walls of Salon91 on Kloof Street, Cape Town, with fresh new takes on his work, his life, his style and his techniques. In a nod to Tretchikoff’s own unstuffy approach to art the work will be in many media but primarily in two-dimensional print work. The exhibition is curated by Andrew Lamprecht and is presented by Salon91 in association with the Tretchikoff Foundation.
The artists involved in this project are:
Barend de Wet
Daniel Ting Chong
Jane Eppel in Collaboration with Nic Bladen
Panga Management featuring Veronica Electronica
