REPRESENTATION

ARTIST DEVELOPMENT & REPRESENTATION

We work with our artists and creatives to launch them sustainably onto the local and global market.

 

We are as committed to the development of our artists as we are to their audiences / patrons / collectors.

 

We actively seek out emerging artists, creatives and designers, and work hard with them at developing both their creative practises and their businesses.

Our Development Process includes informal art and career mentoring and talent management as well as formal Creative Social Entrepreneurial Programmes - from 6 weeks to 6 months plus.

Throughout these parallel processes, we work with artists and creatives to establish a clear voice / brand / identity, recognise and develop their career path, and establish a sustainable route to market.

NYAMBO MASAMARA was born in Rwanda in 1992, two years before the 1994 Genocide. His family was forced to flee their home and eventually returned. Nyambo made his way solo overland to South Africa at the age of 13. He was educated in Cape Town and trained initially in finance, before transitioning to fashion and fabric design.
