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.

A short message from our muti monster
We have new stock available at Entropy in Johannesburg. If you are in the area why not pop in and browse the MissYucki wonders on display in this unique Johannesburg boutique and gallery.
Although actually being in South Africa, we were unable to attend the opening of new gallery and shop Entropy. Boo us! However both the MissYucki girls have visited and can vouch for this new little gem. Located in the Bamboo centre at the entrance to Melville in Johannesburg, Entropy nestles on the top floor and commands attention, and, we think, deservedly so. The gallery and shop are curated by Marlene Jennings and Damon Garstang and they have an eye for unusual, clever and quirky South African art and design. The shop is beautifully presented, and we do suggest you pop in to have a look and drool over all the lovely curiosities found within it’s clever corners. You won’t be disappointed.
We were lucky enough to be invited to show our works as part of their opening, and you can still find some of our prints and MissYucki pageant power rosettes adorning their walls. So if you are in Johannesburg, South Africa, take yourself over there now, and have a look. Thanks so much to Damon, and we wish you tons of yucki love and luck potions with your new venture. yes yes!
Besides MissYucki artworks you can find beautiful felt creations by Ronel Jordaan, sculptures by Frank van Reenan and some suitcase chairs that we think should be gracing the Yucki attic! You can find out more by visiting the Entropy website, or on their facebook.
