Pay Dirt

Works on paper by Hanno van Zyl.

Hanno van Zyl’s lifelong interest in illustration, comic art and graphic design drew him to study Visual Communication Design at the University of Stellenbosch. There he began to explore various roles as a commercial graphic designer, illustrator and artist. After graduating Hanno established himself as an independent creative operating from his collaborative space in Woodstock called “Only Today”. Informed by his experience as a commercial designer and illustrator he developed his practice as a fine artist.
His work explores the underbelly of everyday South-African life, by examining scenes and details often forgotten by dominant cultural narratives and popular discourse. His starkly rendered line drawings aestheticise the banal, thereby highlighting themes of social stratification, fear, economic disparity and violence.
