Steyn City’s call for local artists generates great interest among talented community

Johannesburg October 2012 - Media Release

Steyn City, a visionary mixed-use residential development in Johannesburg North, recently invited local artists from its neighbouring communities of Diepsloot and Cosmo City to showcase their talents to the project management team. This was in the hope to be commissioned to create artwork for the estate.

Comments Giuseppe Plumari, CEO of Steyn City Properties, “The response and talent were both overwhelming. We identified a great deal of talent among the exhibitors and will be able to procure many of their skills during the coming months, giving rise to job creation while promoting our local artists, many of whom have had no formal art training. We believe these opportunities will also provide them with exposure that will assist in extending their careers and portfolios.”

Among the exhibitors was Sicelo Mthembu, a paper mache artist who began his career in 2004 and was one of the artists commissioned to make 32 giants for the Giant Match project for the 2010 Soccer World Cup, which were part of a show reflecting multicultural South Africa. The project involved the talents of over 100 South African actors, musicians, dancers, puppeteers, visual artists and craftsmen from various communities in Gauteng. Artist Mandla Majadibodu’s exhibits included his security guard sculpture, aka ‘The Tin Man’, which had a lot of charisma. Majadibodu shared some of his exciting milestones, including a three-month arts programme at the Glenfiddich Distillery in Scotland, as well as his recent trip to the Radovan Trnavac Mica International Art Studio in Serbia (http://www.ius-trnavac.org/) with the Department of Arts and Culture to promote African art.

And young Thabilwe Nkgapele, 22 years of age and with no formal art training, displayed captivating sketches, demonstrating her impressive talent.

Steyn City is looking to feature various mediums of local art in outdoor public spaces, as well as along the internal roads and recreational paths of the estate. There is also talk of an internal art trail for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Steyn City looks forward to the future and putting a selection of some of these local artists’ works on display for all to appreciate.
