Come on in on Friday and come a look-see, I’m sure there will be something that takes your fancy… below is a sneak peak of a couple of the works going up.
Here are the artists taking place:

Nina Torr15. August 2014
Today I thought I would share some of Nina Torr’s work with you. She is a local South African artist that is one of my most favourite illustrators around. She has exhibited at Wolves a couple of times, as well as at a quite a number of other gallaries. She has a solo show coming up really soon and I’m going to make sure I’m first in line for it! I’ll let you know when it comes around, but for now enjoy some Nina magic.
- Nina Torr (AKA Andy Wyeth) is a Pretoria based illustrator/artist. She earned a BFA in Fine Arts from Parsons the New School for Design in NY in 2010 and is currently teaching illustration at The Open Window in Pretoria.

Joanna Concejo08. July 2014
Joanna Concejo is a Polish illustrator who creates such imaginative and whimsical drawings. Her characters are playful and a little off-centre and I really like her delicate style of drawing.
- Joanna Concejo is a children’s book illustrator whose work is published in France, Italy and Spain. She’s originally from Poland, but currently lives in France where she spends her time drawing and bringing up her children.
My main influences have come from childhood. I was brought up in the countryside with a grandmother who told stories in such a marvelous way that I’ve always had the desire to make things up. I was also surrounded by women who worked with their hands, whether embroidery or knitting, and I had an aunt who loved drawing.
No Man’s Land Exhibition at Wolves Cafe20. June 2014
A new exhibition is going to starting today at Wolves, it’s called No Man’s Land and it’s one I don’t think you’re going to want to miss. Four very talented artists, who include Sonia Dearling, Jaques Kleyhans, Nina Torr and Maaike Bakker are showing their work. They are all super talented individuals and the pieces are really cool. There are a few that are prints available in limited numbers and then a bunch that are originals painted or drawn on glass. You must come have a look if you can, you won’t be sorry.
I have included a few of the works that are up on display for you to have a sneak peak.
Irana Douer18. June 2014
These illustrations are by artist Irana Douer. They remind me of the movie The Ring a bit. They’re dark and a bit obscure, but I think they’re very cool, I think they would make such rad tattoos.
-Irana Douer is an Argentinian artist based in Buenos Aires. Since 2005, Irana has been running Ruby Mag, a magazine featuring the work of artists from different countries, which led her to the publication of the Ruby Book by Gestalten in 2011. Recently, she has also translated the magazine concept into a gallery and shop space where she curates the work of like-minded artists and designers.
