In partnership with curator Megan Theunissen, we’re thrilled to present My Name Is Tanaka, a debut collection of Neo-expressionist paintings by Johannesburg-based artist Ryan Shava!
Shava is a 21-year-old artist whose influences in skateboarding, graffiti, and his nomadic upbringing are reflected by his deeply moving works on canvas and paper. Tanaka is the artist's given name, meaning ‘to be joyous’ in Shona.
“As his Curator, I notice Ryan’s audiences are provided with small, pivotal layered symbolism pertaining to South Africa and his experiences living in the city center. Although layered and colourful, his works are relevant and deeply rooted, and act as a welcoming catalyst for introducing South Africa’s beautiful and complex socio-cultural fabric.” –Megan Theunissen, Curator
