We are really excited to be invited to the exhibition opening, tonight, of the Standard Bank Young Artist of the year: Nandipha Mnatambo. She graduated with a Masters in Fine Art (with distinction) from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, UCT.
It has been particularly intriguing to see some of her work, where it focuses on the human body, usually her own, and the use of natural materials, mainly cowhide. The way she molds and sculpts the hide to the female form are both fascinating and eerie. She has won numerous awards, and being heralded Standard Bank's Young Artist for 2011, is just another reason why you should go and see her work at the Iziko Museum in Cape Town, from the 28th September and ends the 7 November 2011.
You & Me & Everyone We Know is hosting a Neon Spring Night Market this Friday, 30th September. Be sure to wear your brightest colours, since colour blocking is the new black...
OOOH! And we are also really excited to meet up with all the Cape Town Bloggers the 6th of October at French Toast on Bree Street.
