  • SMITH presents CAPE TOWN by KURT PIO.
    CAPE TOWN will open to the public on 25th of February at 6PM & runs to the 25th of March 2015.

“CAPE TOWN” BY KURT PIO

CAPE TOWN is Pio’s first show with SMITH and marks the official opening of the gallery. This exhibition brings together a body of work that Pio has created by engaging with his home city Cape Town. Pio observes the sights, colours, sounds and tastes of Cape Town in the form of painting, printmaking and sculpture – resulting in a witty celebration of this city.

He continues to explore his fascination of minerals and brings to this body of work a new and wondrous mix of gemstones, transforming and objectifying their abstract facets to create luxurious and intriguing shaped canvases.
 
Pio’s obvious love and understanding of design is evident in his use of recognizable imagery such as the Granandlilla Lolly, De Waal Park gates, and his nod to the iconic Milton Glaser logo reinterpreted, placing Cape Town in the league of New York as a destination city.

Each print has been carefully composed by combining colour to represent iconic CT sites such as the Bo-Kaap & Clifton 2nd Beach. He also ventures into Sculpture by reclaiming surfboards and reintroducing them as luxury items.

Have a look at Kurt’s work on his websiteInstagram and Tumblr.

At 24 his smouldering good looks and washboard abs have seen him recently bag an international fragrance campaign – sorry we can’t let you know which one just yet but it’s BIG – very big! He has also rubbed shoulders – and shared the runway – with Tyson Beckford at the David Tlale show at New York Fashion Week.

So when I first got to meet him I kind of anticipated an ego to match – wrong! Mias van der Westhuyzen is remarkably down to earth – so much so that we invited him to model our recent PUMA Tennis feature and we were definitely NOT disappointed. Thanks Mias – you are a star in the
