RMB Turbine Art Fair (RMT TAF) has moved to a new and bigger venue for the 7th edition of the fair. RMB TAF, since its inception in 201, has grown extensively year on year and 2019 has seen the most substantial fair yet in a new location: 10 Fricker Rd, Illovo. The event was held from 12 to 14 July, with a preview evening on 11 July.
"Our vision for TAF has always been to develop young artists and grow the market for African art and elevate art collecting across a wider market. South Africans have really embraced this fair since the beginning, and we are delighted to be moving to a bigger venue in 2019. Visitors will be able to view exciting installations, larger gallery spaces and a more conceptually curated fair but in the relaxed environment that has always been the signature of Turbine Art Fair", says Fair Founder, Glynis Hyslop.
Proudly partnered for a second year by RMB, TAF is a unique South African art collaboration that brings together galleries and artists from around the country to present and sell works. As a talent brand, RMB nurtures and celebrates creativity widely, making this partnership a natural extension of the Bank's respect for the possibilities that creativity unleashes. Enabling access to the arts by supporting and exposing emerging artists, attracting diverse audiences and existing and new collectors, demonstrates RMB's commitment to transforming lives through the growth of the creative economy.
"The RMB Turbine Art Fair thoughtfully extends the visual arts market in an environment that is dynamic, accessible and strongly African," says Alison Badenhorst, Head of RMB Corporate Marketing. "Our own art collection is a tangible example of deliberately sharing the creative energy that art naturally inspires. Totaling 2000 works, the inclusiveness of RMB's collection comes from it being sourced locally, thus communicating the shared African story. Not reserved for executive floors, art is generously accessible throughout the offices and in-between spaces across the workplace".
RMB TAF is an all-encompassing cultural experience for visitors, with artisanal food and beverages, vibrant entertainment and an interactive public programme. It differentiates itself from other South African art fairs through its accessible pricing strategy. The selling price of artworks generally falls between R1000 and R50 000, which presents opportunities to savvy investors and new buyers to extend their collections easily, and for new artists to thrive off this talent platform. Galleries representing established and emerging artists, art organisations, collectives, and original projects present their efforts side by side, creating a synergy that is infectious to all who visit.
"Art is a powerful visual communicator, with the ability to represent and comment on Our multicultural reality, recording highs and lows in socioeconomic and political history. Through our sustained interest in the arts and support of this Fair, we are looking to celebrate and reward the unique depth of creative talent that abounds in South Africa and contributes towards building a better future for all," says RMB Chief Risk Officer and Art Collection custodian Gert Kruger.
"The Forum Company is proud cosponsor of RMB TAF. As leaders in the field of hosting and conceptualising events and pop-ups as well as creating timeless shared experiences through sustainability and innovative, iconic spaces we are hugely excited at the prospect of reimagining of 10 Fricker Rd as the 2019 home of one of Johannesburg's much-loved events RMB Turbine Art Fair" concludes Glynis Hyslop.


His artworks express an imaginary corelationship between man and animal, in a way that portrays animal behaviours and physical statures that are humanly impossible that we can then ourselves only express through the power of imagination.


As a gateway to enhance our meditative state and to bring about imaginary personal interaction, he uses complex fractal patterns.
