INTOTO Gallery

We are currently part of a fascinating exhibition held at INTOTO Gallery in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Showing our artwork the City of Spooks and Delight alongside Laura de Harde, Dan Hillier, Grainne McHugh, Michael Meyersfeld, Colwyn Thomas and Vivian van Blerk, the curators at the gallery certainly put a ton of effort into creating an unusual event full of quirks and eye candy.

Do drop in and see it in person if you can! The gallery is located at:

Winter Wonders

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

MissYucki has been hard at work for the last little while on 5 works for Salon 91, a gallery in Cape Town. We have exhibited at the gallery before and the experience was great! This time we are participating in a group show entitled Winter Wonderland along with some of our favourite SA artists like Bison and Jade Klara, we think the show is going to be phenomenal.

We will post pics of the actual works once the exhibition has opened. More info soon!

Dead Man’s Hand

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

MissYucki has been invited to show a print at a group exhibition at The Cape Town International Tattoo Convention, curated by SixLove Events and Wildfire Tattoos the show focuses on tattooing, of course, and the theme of the “Dead man’s hand”.

Manuela Gray explains that, “The hand is a powerful symbol that transcends time, culture and religion. It can be a symbol of strength, solidarity, supplication, virtue and power. The inspiration behind this exhibition is the superstition of the ‘Dead Man’s Hand’, also known as ‘Hand of Glory’ (the hand, cut from the body of a hanged man, was used as a charm and was thought to have the power to open locked doors and hypnotize.)”

Sounds like quite an interesting show, so if you are in Cape Town, enjoy art and tattoos, why not visit the exhibition and see how MissYucki mixes and trixes up some powerful muti, who knows, perhaps there is a Dead man’s hand brewing in her potjie?

Speaking of tattoos, here are some pics of MissYucki ink on some beloved yucki fans…. Do you have a MissYucki inspired tattoo, let us know, we’re sure our eyes will be dazzled by your work!

Following the success of Skulls and Hearts, Dead Man’s Hand is another art event where top South African artists are given a pre-cast hand and given the brief to create a work of art with it. The exhibition will be moved to the Pavilion Conference Centre for the commencement of the convention and on the last day, works will be auctioned off with proceeds going to charity.
