Another TravelmakerKai Experience… The Wizz Kid FX

When Fabio Tedde tempted us; myself, filmmaker Fred Kuwornu and Stefania Omorodion to an adventure into Kings Cross after the successful launch of Diversity Matters Awareness Week last Monday – there was little to suggest we’d run into this amazing talent gracing the piano well after midnight… Continue reading

Taking to the streets of London with @NexHypeTV!

It’s been a super slow start to the year, and I guess with this being my first post of 2016 I have to extend a Happy New Year to you all!! (Sorry for the tardiness -I’ll fill you in on the dramas, losses and gains in another post!)

The stencil on the wall: Joe Turpin talks being South African, comparison to Banksy and “Park’s Pleasure” debut

The talented Mr Turpin...

The talented Mr Turpin:  “I can’t date the first time I was taken to a gallery… In that sense I’m very fortunate for my upbringing”

With a successful exhibition already to his name, it’s easy to forget the “pop art expressionism” artist is only 19, a student and living in thousands of miles away from home; Johannesburg. In this exclusive interview Joe Turpin talks; being South African, comparison to Bansky and his debut art work “Park’s Pleasure”

 

What are some of your influences as an artist?

Growing up as a South African born-free, I was always surrounded by South African art in our home, as well as our family and friends homes. People like Norman Catherine’s figures and Steven Cohen’s screen prints have always been evident growing up and I can’t date the first time I was taken to a gallery. In that sense I’m very fortunate for my upbringing. My Mother, Gisele Wulfsohn was a photographer and seeing her work, her passion for her subject and her exhibition have always influenced me. She’s number one to me. However like many up and coming artists, it’s people like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf and street artists like Lady Pink and Rammellzee that have had huge impact on my aspirations to pursue art as a future.

Just when you think documenting the Sapeurs couldn’t be more done, Guinness have made a glossy ad in an attempt to catch onto a trend already known to the mainstream… Have they missed the boat on this one? Or is there always room to be further fascinated by the Society of Elegant Persons of the Congo?
