outoftheCUBE is my passion and to date, has been completely self-funded by me and my fellow co-founder Kevin Sneider!
This project has developed out of my five years of lecturing in the UNISA Visual Arts department, where at year-end I became despondent that so many talented graduate students had nowhere to go to show their fresh and thought-provoking work, made always with great integrity. Together Kevin and I conceived the website outoftheCUBE as a stepping stone for early career artists.
The site features work from established artists to early career and student artists, from the top professional South African printmaking studios and from community-based projects. It is rapidly becoming an accessible yet significant research resource for art students or anyone with an interest in our country’s artmakers.
We have been greatly encouraged and supported by many artists, and have a small informal team of art professional colleagues who offer advice and feedback about the site.
