Alliance Française is renowned for giving young and old burgeoning artists a platform on which to show their work. It’s done it again, this time with an exhibit by a young South African artist Khwezi Strydom. The ‘Kultures’ exhibition will run until 15th June at the Paris branch on Boulevard Raspail.
Khwezi is very reluctant to talk about himself. At the opening night of his exhibition he was casually and comfortably working the room, but in a one-to-one conversation he is reluctant almost to the point of evasive. I am able to glean that he was born in the US of a Tunisian mother and South African father. Raised in the US and France he began drawing at a young age, encouraged by his artist mother. This is his first exhibition.
