Wilhelm Saayman Exhibition Opening at the Erdmann Contemporary Gallery

Last night I was invited to attend the opening night of Wilhelm Saayman’s exhibition at the Erdmann Contemporary Gallery. It was interesting to meet the artist himself and learn more about what inspires him and some of the ideas and emotion behind his work. I’ve included a couple of images from the event, but they don’t do justice to the colours and expression of Saayman’s work.

If that’s not enough – the exhibition is entitled “In Season 5 Everybody Dies”, and with the truth of that resonating with his audience, one is left open to the possibilities that his art conjures up.

The opening was sponsored by Viva Vodka, a proudly South African premium vodka. Viva Vodka have aligned themselves with other proudly South African offerings by hosting events in the art world and working to promote local creative talent – from oil painting artists to recording artists.
