Artyli at Nelson Mandela Square opens two new exhibitions on August 13, 2022 –  Colossal by sculptor Anton Smit and  Vivid Identity , a group exhibition by contemporary African artists, in signature style (music, wine, artist walkabouts. See more details below). 

Colossal  by acclaimed South African sculptor Anton Smit is an exquisite showcase of sculptures in a public space. His body of work comprises towering human figures, nudes, impressive heads, masks, hands, angels, floating and stretching figures, warriors as well as abstract works.
Anton Smit's sculptural works
Anton Smit's sculptures. For this exhibition his works are being displayed throughout Nelson Mandela Square 

Anton Smit works with steel, metal, stones, iron and bronze, and for this exhibition his works have been laid out across Nelson Mandela Square, creating a magnificent sculptural journey through what is often a bleak space. Join the artist on a guided walk through Nelson Mandela Square to view his monumental works that explore and dissect the human experience (from 14:30 and again at 15:30 on Sat, Aug 13).

A centrepiece of this exhibition is “Colossal Youth”, a 3m-high sculpture which he says embodies the spirit of our African times.
