Buildings

On this page, you will find prints from The Artists' Press that have buildings and elements of architecture in them. Both real and imagined...

Fiona Pole's lithographs that she has made at The Artists' Press are all concerned with South African architecture. She has focused on Johannesburg with its most striking structures being commercial art deco ones. In her Cape Town prints, the range of buildings is broader and includes a number of historical sites. Paul Stopforth and Sam Nhlengethwa's work has a more political slant. Stopforth spent time on Robben Island, where many of South Africa's political leaders were imprisoned and examined architectural details that would usually be overlooked by the average visitor. Sam Nhlengethwa uses structures that form the backdrop to everyday lives as experienced by migrant mineworkers and poor people living in matchbox housing.

If you are interested in South African buildings then take a look at the website Artefacts, Frank Gaylard has put together the most incredible archive of South African architecture from ancient to contemporary.
