In the wake of the Zuma Spear saga, artist Brett Murray must have been tempted to ditch art for a less politicised pastime like, say, surfing.
Fortunately, he’s found a way to do both. He is one of a handful of artists lending their talents to decorate 10 surfboards for the 2012 Art Board Festival, one of the events in this year’s Wavescape Festival. He’ll be joined by photographers Guy Tillim and Roger Ballen, “mad scientist” sculptor Wim Botha, tattooist Manuela Gray and illustrator Mr Fuzzy Slipperz. The exhibition culminates in a charity auction.
