I would describe myself as being an artist, multimedia designer, art director. For the last 12 years I have created artworks by means of painting, spray‐paint and stencils to comment on social issues and on the politicians and events that make up the South African social landscape. More recently i have used silk‐screening in order to bring the content of the work (that is, critical observation of people and events) closer to a 'media' based technique. These works are the artistic version of satirical journalism and social critique, often controversial. Humour is an important ingredient, and in plays, comic book genre, paintings, and prints the artist does not attempt only to lampoon local personages, but seeks simultaneously to depict their stereotyping by the media. This dual vision (of looking at events both from the 'inside' and the 'outside') reflects the way in which perception is shaped by the media and subsequently becomes reality, and affords the viewer a glimpse of contemporary local politics as welf as lived experience in the urban jungle.
