A friend of mine uploaded a photo of Justine Mahoney’s work on Facebook and I fell in love with it instantly. Justine Mahoney is an artist based in Cape Town who she makes the most amazing sculptures. They remind me a little bit of Francios Van Reenen’s work, but they’re still really cool!

I think I need and not want the sculpture above of the twins, it’s so awesome.

– Justine Mahoney’s current work is based on one seminal miniature sculpture which recall’s her first memory. At the age of three she was hospitalised for a bone degenerating disease in her left leg, a plaster cast was worn for that year. Her work deals with the struggle of life. Emotional and physical states are represented by an array of growths, swellings, attachments and almost parasitic mutations. An army of toy soldiers multiply. Siamese twin, freak, maimed, wounded, weighted, monstrous, transformed children belie their perfect toy like surface.

Bianca Brand is a young talented illustrator from Cape Town who is currently showing at Wolves cafe. Her exhibition ‘Hide Ya Kids, Hide Ya Wife’ started last week Friday and is such a visual treat for the eyes. Bianca’s dark subject matter which is set in bright and fun colours really contrast one another, but in the best possible way.

The show is made up of 12 prints altogether and they are being sold in limited editions of 3. On the opening night, she had already reach the 2nd edition on nearly all of them, so if something catches your eye here, mail me quick sticks.

We have a lot of different kind of art that goes up at Wolves Cafe, but we have never had a Sculptural Exhibition before, so I’m very excited to show you guys the work of Josh Smart who is currently using Wolves’ bookshelf as a home for his weird and wonderful creatures.

The Wideeyed Sculptural Exhibition started at the beginning of the month and is made up of 10 super awesome, limited edition, handmade and painted monsters. And the best part is that their prices are pretty much as awesome as their faces – These guys start at R545 (yes that’s right!) and go up to R2500.
