Very excited to hear that my lovely friend @designbymariska
interviewed the incredibly talented @lionelsmit
for her Artist of the Month series. I remember being completely blown away when I saw his work at @ooroyalmirage
У каждого художника есть свой комфортный масштаб, так сказать творческая зона комфорта. Кто то бесподобен в миниатюре, а у кого то душа требует большего. Гениальный макси монументалист #lionelsmit
со своими творениями 😍🙏🏻
The story of Lionel Smit’s Morphous is so profound!! “The concept behind the ‘Morphous’ sculpture encompasses various ideas that I have been working on, drawing them together to create a single piece. I would say that it is not only one idea, but layered ideas, becoming complex and intertwined. The central concept is of one head looking into the future while the other looks to the past. All my work evolves around the idea of identity and this piece continues to ask the same question: where do we come from and where are we going? How have we changed and almost morphed into different cultural identities?”

WATCH: SA artist helps Peta put plight of abused bears in spotlight.
South African artist Lionel Smit is one of 80 artists who have contributed their work for a striking collection of bear images, as part of a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) exhibition currently on display in China.
This is to draw much-needed attention to the cruel treatment of bears in circuses.
