The Art of Comics: Johannesburg Art Gallery

Recently I participated in the Art of Comics exhibition at the Johannesburg Art Gallery (JAG). Running until the 17th November 2019, the exhibition is a joint showcase of South African comics and French bande-dessinee. It is a fascinating tour through a huge spectrum of styles and story, proving in a gallery space that the medium of comics is a potent communicator, educator and entertainer.

On display, I had panels from the King Shaka comic books, the most recent of which was released in September.

Read more about the exhibition at the JAG website, and check out this short video talking with some of the curators.
