Three of SA’s top visual artists come together to present a new art medium, “Pure Malt”
For the first time in South African art history, three of the country’s top artists will simultaneously showcase artworks using 1000s of malt grains in their works. In a unique national art installation, the artists – Sindiso Nyoni, Yay Abe and Baba Tjeko – will exhibit their three striking artworks in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg from August 3rd.
Inspired by the theme “In the right hands, pure malt becomes pure art”, in collaboration with Stella Artois, the artworks will be placed in iconic South African cityscapes – Sandton Square, V&A Waterfront and Umhlanga Gateway.
Award-winning, multidisciplinary, self-described Afrocentric artist, Baba Tjeko’s piece will capture a modern African couple’s intimate moment and will be exhibited at Umhlanga Gateway Shopping Center in Durban.
