“The South African story of its art can be long if one were to consider the first people who painted and engraved on rocks some 28 000 years ago.”
However it is relatively short when considering its contribution within the broader history of western European modernism. Despite experiencing the vagaries of colonial subjection, South African artists developed visual narratives incorporating the unique features of the country and its diverse society.
Wall presents a collection of works by select key artists such as WALTER BATTISS, CECIL SKOTNES, CHRISTO COETZEE, LUCKY SIBIYA, PETER CLARKE and WELCOME KOBOKA amongst others who forged a uniquely South African art storyline.
