AFRICA’S ART COLLECTIVE AT MALL OF AFRICA PART 2
We’re very excited to be hosting the largest series of public artworks in South Africa and urge you to come have a look. The collection features students, developing artists, emerging artists, mid-career artists and well-established international artists. It’s a platform where everyone has the opportunity to start investing in art whether little by little, or with a bang. A collection of this magnitude cannot possibly fit a single space and that’s why we’ve dedicated the entire upper level of the Mall of Africa to showcase some of the best artists and their work.
Julie Miller Investment Art Institute
Through collaboration with other galleries and organisations locally and abroad, opportunities such as the Africa’s Art Collective in partnership with the Julie Miller Art Institute is made possible. It provides a platform for artists to exhibit their work and become better-known. Have a look at our previous blog for other featured collectives now on display at the Mall of Africa.
Charles Greig Gallery
With galleries in Johannesburg and Cape Town, the Charles Greig Gallery boasts with incredibly detailed sculptures of animals and wildlife. Larger than life sculptures from Bruce Little, Chris Bladen, David Tomlinson, Donald Greig, Italia Greig, Jackie Noakes, Malcolm Solomon and Robert Leggat are currently on display.
An incredible artist in her own right, Doyle is the featured solo artist and rightly so. Walking around the upper floor of Mall of Africa you’ll be able to view 48 uniquely quirky and exceptionally executed sculptures. Her art is inspired by Africa, especially African women and her travelling experiences meeting people from different African tribes. None of her paintings are featured this time, but we have some surprises up our sleeves for the next art exhibition.
Lastly, but certainly not least we have works from international artist, Pascual Tarazona. Having attended the prestigious St Martin’s School of Art he started his career in fashion design and later moved to South Africa in 1975. But it was in 1984 that Tarazona had a change of heart and craved a new creative outlet. He studied under the tutelage of renowned South African watercolourist Joyce Leonard for seven years and today still creates stunning pieces worth showing off in your collection.
The exhibition runs until the 29th of April so be sure to come have a look.
