IN MEMORIAM - IVAN KIRSTEIN

3 November 1959 to 31 December 2018

Ivan Kirstein memoriam 1

Ivan Kirstein was integral in the establishment and success of Solo Studios, having participated as a studio artist in 2017 and 2018, and forming part of a photographic group exhibition at Pictorex in 2017.

Ivan was a daring and unique artist who explored multiple facets of his creativity by means conceptual art, photography, sculpting, drawing, digital art, oil on canvas, charcoal and acrylic, celebrating diversity across a spectrum of mediums. He sought new ways of creating what he called ‘rural graffiti’ without following traditional boundaries or trends. Unique to the Riebeek Valley, his inspiration hinged on the premise of delivering a manifestation of unique creative expressions on the outskirts of society that reflects life in the Swartland.

An exhibition of Ivan’s work will be curated by his family in The Hub in Short Street.
