Artwork by South African Artist Frank Ross

Frank's use of colour in producing township art is bold, direct and deliberate. The colour red is deeply symbolic to him. "I always paint the land in red. The red symbolises the unhappiness from our land. There is always trouble. Our people have many problems with land. There is ongoing political trouble." The light reflects off the metal tin roofs, encouraging closer scrutiny of the detail in the artwork. The shining colours highlight the various materials used in construction of dwellings and shops; the brightly coloured clothes drying in the wind over walls and on makeshift washing lines; the dust from the local soccer match and the sounds of daily life in the Township come alive. Occasionally the iconic Table Mountain is silhouetted in the background as one is drawn into the energy and vibrancy of South African Township life as captured by Frank's rough and honest artworks.
