We are joined by performing artist Dada Khanyisa. She was born and raised in Johannesburg, but currently resides and works in Cape Town, where she releases her work under her sudo name “The Mighty Whale”.
She is a multidisciplinary artist who divulges in sculpting, painting, figurines, illustrations, and especially customising sneakers. Her work has been featured in a variety of popular art showcases, including Miami Art Basel in America, which happens to be one of the most respected out art fairs in the world.
“My visual interests are invested in texture and multiple dimensions; as a result I create sculptural paintings and relate-able objects. The objects I speak of include a re-interpreted wall unit, figurines, reconstructed sneakers, digital illustrations and sometimes a tattoo on someone.”
