Splendid Dwelling by Anton Kannemeyer

Artwork Description


Original title of the artwork: Splendid Dwelling

Anton Kannemeyer is a South African comics artist who makes images imbued with black humor, subversive thinking, and satire. He approaches his complicated, emotional topics with a deceptive simplicity.

In many of his prints, Kannemeyer investigates the continued existence of racism in Africa and its double standards. Prominent in his work is his continued interest in exposing the hypocrisy of the white liberal in South Africa. With his confrontational images and humour, he brings to attention prejudices and worldviews that can then be dealt with and hopefully be done away with.

Some of Kannemeyer's prints relate more to South Africa and the specifics of sport, suburban life and politics. In E is for the Enemy of Democracy he uses quotes spanning almost forty years to suggest that the more things change the more they stay the same.
