screen printed postcards
In Johannesburg, I started a passion projected called What I Love About South Africa. As an expat living in Joburg, it is easy to fall in the trap of comparing and complaining. There's no reliable public transport, the amount of poverty you see is agonizing, there are about three gates you have to unlock to get out of your property--you get the gist. But thinking about the dysfunctional parts of the country really dampened the experience and what place is flawless. I created a passion project that encouraged me to find the beauty in South Africa and what made it loveable, one postcard at a time.
Under the mentorship of Olwandle Studios, I've learned the art and craft of screen printing and to make the project more engaging, I uploaded my postcards on instagram to let followers make requests.
