For the year of 2013, South African artist Lorraine Loots undertook a project to create one miniature painting a day for 365 days. The project, titled 365 Paintings for Ants, was a wild success – enough so that Loots decided to repeat it in 2014, with 365 Postcards for Ants. Drawing on the fact that Cape Town was 2014’s World Design Capital, she themed the year’s paintings on Cape Town and its surroundings and landmarks.
The final collection of tiny paintings is showing at 6 Spin Street in Cape Town – it opened on Saturday and closes on the 5th of February, so if you’re in the Mother City, get down there!
You can also browse and purchase prints of 2014’s paintings on Lorraine’s website.
