Heart of Gold Exhibition


Cape Town-based designer and illustrator Daniel Ting Chong never ceases to captivate us with his diverse works of art, ranging from playful pillow cases to his popular soap designs. His latest project sees him teaming up with fellow local designer Jordan Metcalf in their collaborative exhibition titled ‘Heart of Gold’. On at Salon91 in Cape Town until 20 April 2013, the graphic artworks allude to ‘consumer-based iconography and lexicon’ in a more artistic form, depicting familiar items like cigarette boxes and sneakers in an unexpected light. Exploring different notions around money and greed, the pair has experimented with scale and medium to bring you something truly unique. Expect a neutral colour palette and interesting mediums including wood, ceramic, glass and paper. Check it out for yourself at the Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection, 91 Kloof Street, Gardens, Cape Town. For more information visit salon91.co.za.
