Original title of the artwork: Purple Monster
Cameron Platter’s work filters, in a highly personal and idiosyncratic way, the enormous amount of information available today. Blurring the distinction between high and low, his eclectic and multi- disciplinary approach to art making, typically draws from every day, unorthodox, transient, fragmented, disparate, over-looked sources.
His work appears in the permanent collection of MoMA, New York; The FRAC des Pays de la Loire, France; and the Iziko South African National Gallery. His work has been highlighted in The Los Angeles Times, Artforum, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Vice Magazine, NKA Journal of Contemporary African Art, and Art South Africa.
