With the increasing arrival of the next generation of cultural and politically awakened artists, we are experiencing a well-deserved focus on emerging South African artists. Personally, when I began to take notes of new African artists sitting deeply internationally eight years ago, I saw a shift around. The works of South African artists were included in international exhibitions and African voice grew louder.

For example, & nbsp; Just using materials like fabric and restoring content found, & nbsp; Work is layered, it is very useful and often used. However, I think that bold and multi-dimensional approaches in the lives of African artists, either through sex-oriented work or cultural-specific activities that focus on social political reflection, Strongly prevalent themes that separate and hard-set South African artists. The mind of the global art market.

Why is focus on public art?

Public art allows the street man to directly influence the importance of art. It allows affiliation with the extended community and the transfer of outside of the gallery location.
