Featured Artist

Artist Proof Studios

The long-standing relationship between Strauss & Co and the Artists Proof Studio, resulting in many creative printmaking projects over the years, prompted the Company to approach the Studio yet again with a special project aimed at contributing prints to the Art for the Arch charity auction, with the intention of raising funds for the Desmond and Leah Tutu Foundation Fund. Briefing the APS senior students, Wilhelm van Rensburg, Senior Art Specialist and Head Curator at Strauss & Co, encouraged them to draw inspiration from The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, co-authored by Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama, conceptualising the great wisdom in the book in visual form. The results are a fitting tribute to the life and work of an exceptional man of our times.

This work is a collaborative print where multiple Artist Proof Studio students contributed.
