WORDS Mary Garner
Graffiti-inspired artist Fringe’s first solo exhibition in Cape Town is on display at the Worldart Gallery until 27 July 2017.
Originally from Joburg, Fringe studied design at the Red & Yellow School of Advertising in Cape Town before he started focusing on contemporary art in 2003. While he is well known for his combined use of graffiti and mixed media, Fringe chooses to remain anonymous. He makes use of popular imagery to tell stories and share his perspective on the modern social climate.
Also on display at the Worldart Gallery will be a collection of skateboards painted by local artists and curated by Kent Lingeveldt from Alpha Longboards, a brand well respected for its hand-crafted skateboards. The list of artists includes ICE7, Kilmany-Jo Liversage, Dion Cupido, Ello, Conform, Atang Tshikare and Kaylin Carollisen.
Worldart Gallery is located at 54 Church Street, Cape Town. The gallery is open Monday to Friday from 10am until 5pm and on Saturdays from 10am until 1pm. For more information about the exhibition, visit worldart.co.za.
