Art, Live on the Square at Nelson Mandela Square

Aug 15 - Oct 30 2022       135 West St, Sandton Central
Spring sees new attractions luring art lovers to Nelson Mandela Square. A super popular dining and shopping location the square has vibrant new life in the form of an outdoor sculpture exhibition by renowned local sculptor, Anton Smit. In association with Artyli Gallery, Colossal is Smit's captivating collection of works – with more than 20 large-scale sculptures to be examined and admired. This public installation forms part of the retail and lifestyle hub's new Art, Live on the Square event series. 

Each of Smit's massive sculptures is inspired by a distinct aspect of South African identity, and it's impossible not to marvel at them. Colossal Youth, a four-metre-high sculpture that captures the spirit of modern-day Africa, serves as the exhibition's centerpiece. Smit is also a poet, and he uses his poetry to explain his works of art. To be honest they need little explanation – as even without words they are a captivating sight.
