The South Africanist
Eyethu Nathi le South Africa translated "This South Africa is ours too” The goal of the campaign was to discuss issues such as Xnephobia, Woman & Child Abuse and their safety in our country.
Artist Jesse Yende aka The South Africanist produced 3 posters and shared them via social media platforms. He took inspiration from his posters to create patterns for fabric designs, each of these patterns has been given a person’s name that is representative of some of the different African nationalities found in South Africa today.
Sheni of Shenimosh Studio is a textile artist. All of her designs are heavily informed by her personal history growing up in Maseru, Nairobi, Montreal, and subsequently living in Johannesburg, Maputo, and San Francisco. She believes in the power of visual storytelling and feels that each pattern and print she creates has a story behind it.
Her prints are eclectic and could be applied to a variety of mediums, from clothing and accessories to homeware and wallpaper. As such, the preferred application of her designs are any surface that could benefit from having a surface pattern design.
Tariro enjoys making patterns as simplistic abbreviations of everyday things and life. She ties meaning and sentiment to tell a story of her surrounding world.
Her stories, she believes, are universal and thus she aims to leave a graceful footprint of them in a pattern form.
Tariro resides in Botswana, a beautiful country full of texture and variety.
Her work consists of unique hand drawn motifs that inscribe sentiment,aesthetics and a unique story.
