(Machine embroidered piece by Swany)

Visualizing the Creative Processmappings of the academic journey of an art student 2010 – 2013 is the title of an exhibition by swany currently running at artSPACE durban.

 In the exhibition, swany, who has recently completed a visual arts degree, presents a record of this four-year journey as student artist. Through the presentation of his academic record, the artist provides a visual mapping of a journey undertaken as well a study of the creative process itself.

This Durban-based artist always retains the characteristics of performance art in his pieces, while working across disciplines. He has exhibited at the KZNSA Gallery, artSPACE durban and the COLLECTIVE. He most recently exhibited his performance and installation piece, Proof of Life (2013), at artSPACE durban, and took part in a group exhibition, More Than Words (2013), at the COLLECTIVE.

Visualizing the Creative Process runs until May 24 at 14h00 at artSPACE durban. The gallery is situated at 3 Millar Road (off Umgeni Road) close to the Waste Centre. More information on 031 312 0793 or visit or
