iBi Art arranges pop-up exhibitions over three evenings, including cheese and wine (Wednesday to Friday) and a Saturday morning in order to invite guests to see the art, meet the artist, and buy their work.
Meet Our Artists
Layziehound started out studying engineering, but it was not for him. An intense artist that sees the world through his critical eye, he makes social commentary on politics of the day, roles we play in society, and often his own role as the artist in South African culture. He questions our roles in society as well as his own as the artist in society today, working in the South African context and landscape.
Severa Rech CassArino
Severa Rech Cassarino is an artist in the fine art realm, an art teacher, author, and bead and jewellery creator. She is multi-talented and a creative genius in all fields. She has been making art since she was a little girl. Technically very skilled and diverse in her art making, Severa and iBi Art have worked together for many years. Her solo show in June 2018 showcased her art work as a retrospective, giving the viewer a taste of all her genres of expression.
Shui-Lyn White is a self-taught artist. She started creating visual art many years ago when she read “The Artist’s Way”. A poet and well-read scholar, she is inspired by poetry and the writing of some of the most profound writers, including Franz Kafka, Milan Kundera, Kazuo Ishiguro, Haruki Murakami, and WG Sebald. She believes they challenge the basic narratives of our world, our sense of ourselves, and the ways in which we interpret what we experience. Shui last exhibited with iBi Art in Johannesburg about 10 years ago.
Some of our current artists include: Jonathan Stone, Michael Newton, Layziehound, Nick Walsh, Sam Smirrin, Rodger Hart, Bongi Bengu, Roger Trebilcock, Gordon Froud, and Catherine Abraham.
Our art events are marketing opportunities for artists to promote their art work and sell their art. We arrange pop-up exhibitions over three evenings with cheese and wine (Wednesday to Friday) and a Saturday morning for guests to see the art, meet the artist, and buy their work. The lovely Alliance Française Gerard Sekoto Gallery provides a perfect opportunity to network and showcase a variety of artists.
