this year i made my first real art purchase. my friend Amy is the curator of Smith, a gallery in central Cape Town – so i am lucky to have a small glimpse into what’s happening in the contemporary South Africa art world. i would love to expand our art collection, but it’s something that has to come slowly and surely when you are starting out.
i always have – and still do – rely on finding “affordable art” to hang in my home & studio. i’m not averse to printing a picture i like and slapping it in an old frame, but i prefer supporting artists by purchasing original posters & prints. plus, the art is better. there are a bunch of goodies on Etsy and other online shops. here are a few i like.
