APS Students x Strauss & Co Abstract Interpretations
For the 2019 RMB Turbine Art fair (RMBTAF), Strauss & Co have exhibited the acclaimed work of Douglas Portway and Louis Khehla Maqhubela as their featured artist. Artist Proof Studio is privileged to collaborate with Strauss & Co for third year in a row by getting APS students to create their own interpretations of inspired by Strauss & Co featured artists.
The 2nd Year and 3rd Year students from APS were asked to make a contemporary response to Portway’s and Maqhubela’s work. The students have responded to both artists unique styles that are rooted in abstract expressionism. Portway and Maqhubel’s use of bright colours, expressive marks and shapes serve as a catalyst of inspiration.
These special artworks are available for purchase at the RMBTAF - ranging from R800.00 - R2000.00 - CATALOGUE HERE

Artist Proof Studio has always ensured that it's students and alumni always have the opportunity to engage directly with art buyers, through live printmaking demonstrations or meet and greet.
