Atang Tshikare

For South African multi-disciplinary artist, Atang Tshikare, creativity knows no bounds. His ever-expanding portfolio of work traverses the worlds of painting, sculpture, film, and music with a work in one realm spurring the creation of an ecosystem across others. In addition to a new exhibition inspired by the birth of his son, the prolific artist has work included in the Metropolitan Museum’s ‘Before Yesterday We Could Fly: An Afrofuturist Period Room.’ Tshikare’s recent, independently launched solo show, ‘Peo e Atang’, is addressed to his newborn son, Peo. For it, he bound sculpture, music, animation and drawings together into a metastructure he calls a “physical narrative”. The presentation delivers an expansive vision centred on graphical, zoomorphic forms that emerge from fables of Peo’s misadventures. He will be unveiling a collaboration with Dior at Design Miami/ in late November.
