"Rosin's current work is a tongue-in-cheek reflection on what can only be described as a really strange year indeed. 2020 will undoubtedly go down in history for obvious reasons, the question is how? So much has happened to change our World already that one wonders what's next?" –Stephen Rosin

Stephen Rosin is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist working with ink, beeswax, gunpowder, bullet lead, digital photography, and a variety of other unusual mediums. The winner of the prestigious Barclays Bank l’Atelier award in 2009, Rosin’s artistic practice is characterized by a conceptual approach to socio-political commentary and subtle satire which he achieves through intricate and detailed imagery. His work is held in the Sasol, Telkom, and Absa corporate art collections, to name a few, as well as in the permanent collections of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. Rosin lives and works near Plettenberg Bay in South Africa.
