Nostradamus of trend, Li Edelkoort, came to Cape Town last month and told the people that Pierrot-like stuff would probably crop up in our lives this year.
Except this it wasn’t done yesterday. ‘The Boy With Fur Collar’ is from the personal archives of Cape Town artist Johan Slabber, whose work is introspective and intense. Seeing this makes me want to pick up a stick of charcoal or an ink pen and get messy with my sketch book.
The work below is another of Johan’s.
