Last week my husband I attended the Absa L’Atelier awards evening in downtown Jozi. I’m sure most of you in the art world know about the competition, but for those who don’t the Absa L’Atelier is South Africa’s most prestigious art competition and is held annually for artists between ages 21 and 35. This award not only ensures South Africa’s emerging artists of recognition, but also affords them the opportunity to develop their talents abroad. The winner gets R125 000 and a six month art residency in Paris. Pretty sweet.
A showcase of some of the most handsomely designed things from around SOUTH AFRICA as well as the artists/designers/artisans behind them.
Uh, that's handsome as in well-made or skillfully executed, not handsome as in Tom Selleck.
