Township art depicts the fragile system of the struggle for existence and the hope of survival in many of South Africa’s informal settlements. The combination of rough and raw materials like wood, plastic, metal, tin and paint work together in creating, often in a mixed media artwork and even sometimes in 3-D, a unique and intriguing interpretation of a day in the life of the townships. Bright colours bring hope to the hopeful, structures build strength for the weak. The juxtaposition of both dream and reality is clearly visible in these works.
Popular township art by South African artists include Frank Ross, Katherine Ambrose, Mauro Chiarla and Lazarus Ramontseng, amongst others, and can be purchased directly from our online art gallery
