WAYNE BARKER: ARTIST’S MONOGRAPH by Charl Blignaut (Chalkham Hill Press) Those familiar with “cutting edge” contemporary art, or the suburb of Troyeville, need no introduction to Wayne Barker. But for those who do, or who know him simply as a louche, conscientious objector-artist and one-time gallery owner who bears more than a passing resemblance to that other art icon, Joseph Beuys, his recently-launched artist’s monograph is worth a browse.
Published by Chalkham Hill Press in association with the French Institute of South Africa (Ifas), the monograph is suitably post-modern in look, with a very Tom Waits-meets-Reservoir Dogs pic on the cover.
