The Super Neat Exhibition by Paper Snap started at Wolves last week Friday and it got such an awesome response. All the prints are super nice and so affordable, so I thought I would post some pictures up of the work in case some of you want to order some online. The show only comes down in the middle of Jan BUT the guys who designed the stuff are printing orders as they come in, so that if you want to buy any as Christmas presents, you’ll be able to collect them before Wolves closes for the holidays (±14th of Dec). Yes!

All prints vary from R350 to R450. So if you are keen on any, please drop Tasha an email at hello@wolves.co.za

Emily Jane Long – painter extraordinaire

Emily Jane Long10

2 days ago I posted about a piece of art that I had commissioned for Shane for our 6th wedding anniversary. What I didn’t know was that Shane had also secretly commissioned another brilliant local South African artist, Emily Jane Long to create a piece of art for me as a gift. It was so awesome when we both pulled out these 2 flat wrapped gifts and almost immediately we both realised what they were.

Dani Loureiro – type genius

November 19, 2014

Dani-Loureiro-2

A little while back I saw some of Dani Loureiro’s amazing laser cut typographic work on Instagram and at an art fair in Joburg and I was blown away by it. And so this year for mine and Shane’s 6th year wedding anniversary, I decided to commission this local designer to make me a wooden typography piece as a gift for Shane. I came up with a saying ‘forever now then & always’ (these words hold special meaning to us both), she then laid it out in a font that she hand designed and then had it laser cut into the very awesome and intricate piece of art below. It came out amazingly, just like I imagined it would and I was so damn excited to give it to Shane, because he absolutely loves beautifully thought out and executed typography.

Driehoek – Surfaces Exhibition

October 21, 2014

driehoek

The lovely girls from Driehoek are putting on a solo exhibition again at Wolves. The last time they did that it was a sold out show because their stuff was damn nice and fun. I really can’t wait for this one either. It starts this Friday at Wolves at 6pm. See you there…

- In this exhibition, we explore the Eureka movement. Focusing on the scientific and in this particular case, the squishy bits.  The Eureka movement is a movement of discovery and intellectual enrichment, making information accessible and understandable to the people. We are students of the eureka movement but of course we don’t take it to seriously. From dissecting a Ninja turtles hand to our interpretation of the human nerves system, to imagined geological studies and science puns. We discover the many imagined, colourful, quirky and humours surfaces of the scientific. We are so exited to launch our latest exhibition: Surfaces, in Johannesburg and for the first time ever in Cape Town! Come and join us for a glass of wine.
