Nivesh Rawatlal will give a walkabout on his exhibition Wide Eyed and Wasted at the Alliance Française de Durban tomorrow (March 3, 2018).

"The images that form the content of this exhibition is an archive of material based on experiences, mistakes, experiments, surrealized interpretations of events, loaded with historical symbology and misguided humour,” Rawatlal explains.

“I draw aesthetic influence from a combination of street art, comic book illustration and political cartooning to form the subject of my artwork. Context varies from the interpretation of the image and its message. However the imagery seeks to inform as well as engage with messages that I found through my experiences as a not so young anymore, South African artist living in Durban," he adds.

The walkabout will take place tomorrow (March 3) from 11h00 to 12h00. Entrance is free. Alliance Française de Durban is situated at 22 Sutton Crescent (off Windermere Road) in Morningside. For more information contact 031 312 9582 or fax 031 312 2864 or email:
