100% design south africa along with 9 other artists BLANDAT was asked to join the expo for the entrance of the fair. Celebrating design heroes,
items or buildings by creating a commemorative cloth design.
African wax print
Obsessed by prints , specially the African Wax and their use. They inspire me daily to create my own style alternative to African Wax print.
But it’s not only the patterns themselves that are great, the hidden messages that are carried out in the cloth daily by the woman make it even more special. Celebrating the power of woman with their message for the patterns they wear.For this icon I made my own small prints for all the elements. Using the anti-minimalist approach of putting everything together ; More is more.
The shape and composition in this commemorative cloth is inspired by the old age iconography; using a nimbus to accentuate the glory of a divinity.
