Berlin Exhibition

What an unbelievable privilege to travel all the way to Berlin to share my latest project through Urban Noun at Level EIGHT in the German burrow of Mitte. As a contemporary illustrator it is important for me to step away from commissioned originals every now and then in order to address tough issues we are experiencing in our country.

This project came to life through my muse, Michelle Hattingh, author of “I’m the girl who was raped”. It is a truly inspiring book that was surely extraordinarily difficult to write but it is an issue we as a community should face head on in order to make a change, however small. Read through her stories up on my blog to understand each artwork.

This is a project aimed at rejoicing in the empowerment of all females, celebrating the female form in all of its exquisite imperfections and a journey of rediscovering your power as a woman.

A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Rape Crisis Foundation as a platform for your chosen piece to give back to a charity that can help all rape survivors in South Africa.

This is by far some of the best work that I have done and I am so proud to see myself slowly growing into an illustrator that will attempt to capture difficult contemporary issues and use my art as a platform for change and the empowerment of women.
