Art Manifesto


Art must be aesthetically pleasing

Art must evoke a sense of the subject

Art must be enjoyed

Candice Hirson- who am I, what have I done

I am a South African artist and educator who is now living in London. In 2007 I graduated from the now endangered University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa with an honours degree in fine art and a PGCE in visual art education (2011). I have exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Johannesburg and London.

My first love is painting (although I enjoy most types of creative making) and I have experience in a range of paint media and enjoy stitching cotton thread into and through my work.
