Wow...what a privilege to be in the midst of and have a photo with the world-famous artist, @esthermahlanguart as she and Tiger Brands come together for Heritage Day celebrations. .
Dr Mahlangu paints in the Ndebele tradition, each stroke accurately applied with a chicken feather, a skill she learnt at the age of 10. She has gone on to achieve global recognition.
.
Her success as an artist can be a lesson for us all - to celebrate our heritage and embrace it. 
At 82 years old, she is still painting and hosted a Master Class today at the @national_school_of_the_arts 💪🏼
.
Heritage Day is so much more than just about having a braai. Love your culture, love your tradition. Celebrate it all...not just on Heritage Day. .
.
More importantly, learn about other cultures so that you may respect them all.
.
.
Fantastic initiative from @tasticricesa and @lovealbanybread 🙌🏼

A little project that I'm currently working on. It seems my obsession with bears has no bounds.

Just had to have a go at @angie.alape ‘s #drawthisinyourstyle challenge. This character intrigues me. Can’t help but wonder what her story is. 🤔

"MAMA MARAGU" Edition 1 of 1.
I don’t do many commissions but a couple of months ago, 4 brave women headed up by Hazel Shabala contacted me after seeing my figurative bronze artworks in various Galleries. My subject matter has always been figurative - exclusively female figures in fact.
After listening to Hazel and her accomplices’ dream that had motivated them over a four year period of saving large sums of money from their own incomes, I realized that they wanted to commission me to create a very special piece, and yes it was female… but… it could only be the feet! 
They knew what they wanted to portray from a symbolic point of view and they sensitively took time to share the context and background to their visionary piece with me.  It was both heartening and humbling for me to see the incredible respect that these gracious women have for their spiritual Mother - Mama Maragu. 
Yet, having given me a wonderful understanding and the basic boundaries to work within, they also made it very clear from the start, that they respected my input as an artist. This is something every artist longs for and it left the goal posts open for me to interpret the sculpture in my own way – very brave of them indeed!
Little did I know what a wonderfully jubilant journey it would be travelling alongside these effervescent ladies as they gave me insight into their ideas and symbolic wisdoms that they wanted the feet to reflect. And it was done with a wonderful joy that was simply infectious. I have loved being part of this creative process. Here is the final – a once off piece…Edition 1 of 1! #markemeyer #markemeyerbronzes #sculpture #art #artistsoninstagram #instaart #southafricanartist #original #new #artoftheday #contemporary #bronze

Art by HENNIE NIEMANN JNR.
.
.
Hennie Niemann Jnr is a painter who predominantly works in oil on canvas. His mastery of the medium and the subsequent development of his unique style is grounded in the rigorous tuition received from his artist father, Hennie Niemann Snr and the late iconic South African painter and family friend, Gregoire Boonzaier. Niemann Jnr started out experimenting with the Fauvist aesthetic and was greatly influenced by artists such as Pablo Picasso and South African painters, Walter Battiss and Maurice van Essche. His early expressive paintings were characterised by bold, confident brushstrokes complemented by a rich impasto technique.
Niemann Jnr’s style has progressively gravitated towards greater abstraction, not in its purest form, but rendered in a fragmented style comprising angular, hard-edged forms, restructured to capture the disposition of complex compositions. His current fascination with the energy, rhythm, and harmony of dance has been at the forefront of his development in recent years.

I don't play rugby.
(Acrylic on canvas)
•
What do you think?
Please read the interpretation and give me your opinion on my message⚘⤵
•
Meaning of this work:
This is my second painting ever, for my 3rd term art final at Grey High School.
I wanted to create an artwork that represents what I stand for in contrast to what others around me stand for. In my school Rugby is over-praised and over-valued to a disproportionate degree,
whereas, the arts are undervalued and rarely celebrated or encouraged.
The general unspoken understanding in my school is that you need to succeed in Rugby to be celebrated in that system.
I created this artwork, a portrait of me in school uniform but looking very different to how you'd expect a 'Grey-Boy' to look so as to represent that you dont need to exist within the norm or stereotype in order to be successful
and that the system you are in does not define you.
I am a 'Grey-boy' regardless of whether or not I conform to the schools disproportionate value system.

This painting was inspired by a shoot I did with @ironglaciercreative. Check his page out⚘

I have taken so many photographs over the years, mostly of wildlife, and mostly during my time working in the bush. i either use the photo's as references or mess around with them to find fresh ways of seeing wildlife. Wildlife and the conservation thereof is very close to my heart. Often, when I draw or mess around with my photo's, I am frustrated by not having enough technical know-how (by that I mean in execution, not just in digital tech) to make the idea in my head come to life. This is another idea I am playing around with, although it feels more a work in progress at the moment. I would really hope that I find a way to raise awareness for our wildlife through my art and photography. 
A bit about this one: 
ENDANGERED SPECIES : Temminck’s ground pangolin (Smutsia temminckii)
One of four species of African pangolin, this one is the only one found in South Africa.
They are unique as they are covered in scales – keratin, just like our fingernails – that overlap, and are the only mammal that has this characteristic. When threatened they will roll into a ball and rely on their scales for protection.
At night mostly, they eat termites and ants, using their long sticky tongue and large front claws to aid this. They are also known as the ‘scaly anteater’.
Pangolins the world over are under threat due to poaching to supply the wildlife trade. Not just their scales, or their meat but live animals are trafficked with minimal jail time to poachers not being a big deterrent. They are being EATEN INTO EXTINCTION.

With Running on the Line (2018), Bruce Clarke presents us with a metaphor of what it means to migrate, to run on a line, each step aside is a risk, each line is perhaps an opportunity if you know where it leads to. This graceful painting is the last in the Migrants series on show @klosercontemporaryart. Birth of an Icon is an investigative exhibition articulated around three central series of paintings in the South African artist’s work. www.kloserart.com @bruce.clarke3 #bruceclarke #populism #migrants #immigrants #migrantcrisis #running #line #southafricanartist #activistart #metaphor #border #future #path #life #collectart #artandliterature #artist #onshow #artonline

I'm thinking I might rule the world one day. I have just learnt how to regram (no don't think anything impolite) Well actually my beautiful neice showed me how. But that's why we have family right. So they can show silly old aunties how to do things! This is my work at Brioche. ABSOLUTELY BESTEST EVER-EST coffee shop in the bay. Bay....being Port Elizabeth South Africa. If you need an excuse to fly to PE, this is it!
