In this episode, Britt Lawton from the David Krut Gallery sat down to speak to self-taught artist Paul Senyol the day of his opening for Markers - a solo showcase done in collaboration with Paul Senyol and his representing gallery Salon91, Cape Town. Paul Senyol is an abstract painter who reflects the details of everyday life, paired down to an empathy with colour, line and form. His work is a carefully crafted response to his wonderings through various spaces. The colours and textures of urban and natural environments inform his spontaneous practice in the studio. Skateboarding emerged as a gateway to early creative works on the street and remains an important part of Senyol’s experience of urban spaces. His unique visual language is founded on the inevitable change and flux in environments and his works are testament to the translation of experiences into form. CHAPTERS 00:35 – Wecome to Johannesburg! 2:45 – Intention, composition and Finland residency; ‘The paintings always have a drawing’ 06:35 – Creative flow in the studio, process 08:55 – Titles interesting interplays with words; the meaning of Markers. 10:15 – Margymnal, Recollectionary and reflecting on a personal archive 12:00 – Relationship with Salon 91 established by Monique Du Preez 14:00 – Informal Art education, cross-over of art and skateboard culture, DIY culture 17:30 – Street art, graffiti, outdoor and indoor spaces 20:50 – Opening of Markers at David Krut Projects, Johannesburg For more information visit our website: http://davidkrutprojects.com/exhibitions/51036/markers-paul-senyol Paul Senyol Blogspot: http://senyol.blogspot.com/ Salon 91: https://www.salon91.co.za/tag/paul-senyol/

Elize De Beer had an opportunity to chat to João Orecchia at our Arts on Main Workshop about his music and artistic practice ahead of his upcoming exhibition Instruction, opening 14 May 2019 – 142A Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood. João Orecchia is a Johannesburg based artist, composer and maker of physical and virtual “things” that play with reality by deconstruction, shifting expectations of standard uses or purposes of objects and processes.

Instruction will be his first solo exhibition and showcases Orecchia’s first series of etchings and woodcuts created in collaboration with the David Krut Workshop and Master Printer Jillian Ross. The body of prints is accompanied by static and interactive sound installations, videos and performances.

Welcome to another epsoide of The David Krut Projects Podcast, today we are unpacking the artworks that will be showcased in an upcoming exhibition, Urban Chemistry: Creative Place-making in Johannesburg. Which will be opening on the 3rd of May 2019 at David Krut Projects, New York and later on in the year at David Krut Projects, Johannesburg. Our speakers today are The Johannesburg Development Agency's Art My Jozi Project artists: Zivanai Matangi, Thusi Vukani, Senzo Bongwana, Sparks Napoli, Mantala Nkoatse and Stephen Hobbs. The Johannesburg Development Agency’s Art My Jozi Project implements functional public art enhancements and facilities in strategic public places in key nodes along the City’s transit corridors. Executed under the oversight and funding of the City’s Development Planning Department, the Art My Jozi documentary team, known as the Creative Crew, engages in an ongoing programme of workshops, events and installations - exploring creative place-making through community participation and co-production. Urban Chemistry, an exhibition on view at David Krut Projects New York, draws on the interpretive eye of the Creative Crew as they examine the precarious social conditions and ambiguous spaces found between the more traditionally designated outlines of city-commissioned urban transformation. This exhibition comprises photography, film and public performance works - excavating alternative vantage points that explore the tension between social and political rights of access, emerging creative micro economies, and the power of the performative to activate space and unearth history and memory. Stephen Hobbs, visual artist and Director of a public art production organization The Trinity Session, has been instrumental in guiding the curation and implementation of the Art My Jozi programme and will present a series of his own photographic works that reflect on urban defensiveness and what might be perceived as an increasing distrust of public life in our neighbourhoods.
