If you’ve had a really busy week and haven’t had the time to keep up with posts from NICE Magazine: Contrast & Contradiction, then this post is just for you. It’s a quick catch up of the past week with handy little links to the content you may be interested in.
Michelle van Aswegen was asked about the best thing she’s seen in a while and she told us about The Cool Capital Biennale taking place in Pretoria. The Cool Capital Biennale is an initiative that provides a platform for creatives to become actively involved in revamping the notion of their city. The initiative rallies people together, expresses love for the capital, and encourages people to pitch in to improve the place in which they stay.
Mathieu St-Pierre is a Canadian glitch artist. He manipulates video files to create pieces of art out of corrupted pixels. Mathieu’s work is quite exceptional, so we felt that we needed to capture a little bit more of who he is and what he is about.
Gerhard Human’s illustrations are gritty, and his use of colour and movement is striking. You can see a few of them in the Art Fight editorial in NICE Magazine: Contrast & Contradiction. Here’s the throwback part – a couple of Gerhard’s illustrations from his interview in NICEMag (which was put together last year). We also showed you some of Gerhard’s newer stuff that he’s been busy with since we interviewed him.
Contributors for Art Fight this week were Johannesburg-based illustrator and Ireland Davenport Art Director, Renate van Rensburg and Cape Town-based freelance illustrator and designer, Ruschka du Toit. Don’t forget to head on over to the post and vote for who you think the winner is.
