Smoking Gun: The New World Order

A New World Order refers the group of artists accompanying Ofentse’s work throughout the gallery. Onyis Martin tackles issues of capitalism and housing in Johannesburg, while Asanda Kupa’s distorted figures echoes the streets of the Eastern Cape. Hussein Salim is a painter who uses nostalgia to connect to his homeland in Sudan. Twenty One year old emerging artist Ian Banja is fascinated by everyday fashion and street scenes from Kenya in his struggles series he depicts the everyday obstacles faced by his peers. All different voices echo  an intense political and economic climate, served to the viewer with a hint of dystopian optimism, as the materiality, processes and techniques of the group of artists all reflect unlatched creativity.
