Persona art project – a creative take on the men’s sign and giveaway

Persona-Art-Project-Logo-without-Border-Persona-Art-Project-Ant-Vervoort-.jpgHere is an interesting art project that I came across, and it is all by a Cape Town team. They have taken the traditional “mens” sign found on bathroom doors, and converted it to really funky art, so here are just 2 examples.

There are a bunch more on their Facebook page, including historical people, world leaders, tv and movie persona.

I have been chatting to them, and they have offered to do 2 cool things:

Firstly there is a free signed print of the Beatles picture as a giveaway to one of my readers (Just leave a comment on the blog or on Facebook to enter).

Secondly they are going to create a persona of me which I will post when it is ready.

They are planning on crowd-funding this project at the Design Indaba, so in a few days I will post something about it when I have more details. But it looks like an interesting project worth watching.

Two brothers, Shayne & Ant Vervoort, are launching a Kickstarter campaign on September 22 to promote an exciting new art project coming out of South Africa — Persona Art Project.

The aim of this project is to tap into the massive reach that an international platform such as Kickstarter provides. South Africa has just scratched the surface in terms of crowd-funded projects. The Persona Art Project wants to be part of this community of creatives and utilize the process of crowd-funding to build support around grass-roots projects such as this, coming out of South Africa.

Rock art

I saw this rock-art at Danger Beach in St James while out running a few days ago. Isn’t it pretty cool? I just love how somebody took the time to make it and just left it there for us to see, and to see what happens to it. Reminiscent of the Zen sand Mandalas that you make to perfection and then destroy, reminding us of the impermanence of everything.

Casa Mila

Some of the strange statues that live on the rooftop of Casa Mila in Barcelona, yet another Gaudi masterpiece.

Some of the Ink

Part 3 of the Ink & Iron shots: the ink. Weather you like tattoos or not, you simply cannot deny the talent that some of these artists have. Some astonishing work.

Finally work in progress. I think that a job like this must take months to do. Just for the record, this is a  little keen for me, but it still looks incredible.
