Have City, Will Play

 

This series of paintings is about my experience of living in the city of Johannesburg, South Africa.

They describe the existence of materialism within the city and an urge to survive through material success. The artworks also depict frivolity and fun one can and should have in the city and the urge to survive through enjoyment.
Through this series I am trying to portray that although life is a series business and should certainly be taken seriously, one should never be serious about it because as soon as seriousness walks in the front door, success flies out the back window.Bluebird Of happiness Chicks Dig Big Fish Do More Fun Happy Trails Mandi Monkeys Wedding Play me yellow Seeing The Same Llittle Birdie Told Me Too Tower Dance
