MissYucki participated in “Youth (an inner reflection)” – three dimensional art from Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa-Art manifestation in Mozambique, January / February 2008.

We created a giant MissYucki doll and two mean looking muti monsters for this show. And when we say GIANT we mean giant… well shes the biggest one weve made so far… her head is so huge shes not going to have any self esteem issues. Alba and Loren, our patternmaking specialist, worked for hours stitching up this extravaganza, and Kat is completed the painting. Shes our little “love child”… You can check out a small photoshoot of her in the Photo Album Section.

The show will also hopefully travel through Europe.
lets hold thumbs for that
pageant power

heres the info for the show:

Unfortunately our MissYucki doll didnt travel too well it would appear that the train ride form Johannesburg to Mozambique was a bit too much for her. Oh well. Shes up, if a little dusty and bruised…we hope she survives out there…

If you happen to be in Mozambique go check it out! and Give MissYucki kisses to help heal her wounds!

MissYucki illustrations were shown as part of the SA Arts Emerging Booth in Rotterdam from the 6 to the 10th of February in the “Project or Art Fair” show.
SA Arts Emerging is a blog/project that promotes emerging contemporary artists in South Africa. It gives the artists a platform from which they can discuss and critique work, network with other artists and keep up to date with exhibitions and projects in SA.

The site is quite interesting as there are not really any online platforms in South Africa that artists can subscribe or submit work to. I hope that the site expands and becomes a little more interactive. Thank you very much to Rat Western, for supporting MissYucki and showing our illustrations :D

You can read rats blog @ The Midnight Kitchen, where she mixes and concocts thoughts on the art arena of South Africa and beyond. Also check out the SA arts emerging blog here
