New Artwork at Kalk Bay Modern

The Kalk Bay Modern has recently acquired some new artwork by the exciting, upcoming artist Michael Chibogo.
He is passionately inspired to be the voice of the homeless and expresses their plight through the media of printing, painting and poetry.  His intensely atmospheric work also speaks out against the abuse of drugs and alcohol that are the downfall of many homeless people, pointing out how these substances can lead any of us down their sad path. His work is inspired by a deep empathy and desire to ease the suffering of our less fortunate fellows.
Chibogo has participated in a number of exhibitions many at the Artist Proof Studio, in Newtown where he now works as an assistant facilitator. He also works for the Creative Inner City Initiative were he facilitates silkscreen printing workshops.
KBM is in the throes of preparation for a particularly exciting exhibition featuring art on paper to open later this year as well as the upcoming Nicolaas Maritz exhibition entitled Mermaids and Mountains which opens on Wednesday the 9th of June.
Be sure not to miss out on any of these exciting events!
