Her unique geometric-esque style has propelled her to the top of Africa’s growing urban art universe while continually flaunting her humble nature and love for traditional graffiti lettering. Expressing herself through bold lines, distinctive colour palettes and engaging subject matter which combine figurative and natural elements such as local flora and fauna, her vibrant artworks enrich their surroundings and spark constructive dialogue. Bursting with imagination, Nardstar* dazzles on any occasion; be it inside the studio or on the streets, from walls and canvas, to designing on the computer, and for a range of client briefs. Freshness and persistence has awarded her major accolades, including packaging designs for brands such as Castle Lite beer, sneaker customisation for Converse, window displays for Woolworths and large-scale murals for aquariums and residential buildings, to international festivals and artist residencies in France, Brazil, and the USA on more than one occasion, adding her name to walls of fame, and blessing the Nike worldwide headquarters with her talent. Formidable and flexible, she continues to wield her spray can to gain further notoriety, delving into relatable stories and pushing her own creative exploits to new heights.
