Illustrations by Modise Sepeng
As the 24 year old founder of design and illustration brand Negritude Republic, Modise is already a force to be reckoned with in the local (South African) commercial art scene. He simplistically adapts liberation heroes like Steve Biko and Madiba to current contexts of cool. He’s well known for his Nubian art and Japanese print inspired busts and portraits of black faces with urban contemporary appeal. Each of his works looks like a post-colonial coat of arms designed by a tattoo artist. His style is a mash up of Pan-Africanism and punk rock fused with pop art and hip-hop chic. His work is a much needed reminder to most forgetful generation of black kids, that their heritage shouldn’t be erased but rather adorned with pride and bad-ass attitude, hence- Negritude.
The Gif Connoisseur
A firm favourite for artist name of the year, is possibly an admission of the possibilities upon this new art form, or rather our art form. By that I mean all us digital kids who created or observed these odd, humorous, artistic and sometime crazy gifs. This is a new thing, certainly not around when the chap in the suit was around was a teenager. I don’t think we are a million miles away from gif artists having their own exhibitions and such, I’ll be bit surprised if it’s not been done yet but image walking into one of these grand gallery halls and viewing gif artists work surrounding you, might be a tad surreal.
