Art in Cape Town

A retrospective exhibition of the artist, Vladimir Tretchikoff, will open to the public at the Iziko South African National Gallery on 26 May. While Tretchikoff is undoubtedly one of South Africa’s most controversial artists, much maligned in the 1960s and onwards by several members of the established arts community, there can be no doubt that he has become a cultural icon and remains a favourite artist to many South Africans.








It is very much like poster art with these very bold colors that some how still come off very opaque.  I am a fan of Poster.  If you find art on my wall it will most definitely be poster art.  .

Did you enjoy the exhibit overall? I thought it was a bit...something lacked for me. It may just have been the fact that 2 of my favorites weren't there. That was a bummer.

It was good. But I rarely go to exhibitions and so I enjoy them whenever I go. If you ever need a new art buddy, next time give me a shout!

We missed an opening somewhere on Kloof on Wednesday. There was soo much wine, my date arrived hammered when we met!
Otherwise - of course I enjoy whiskey. I'm German. I enjoy all alcohols except for Bailey's and Sambucca.
