Brett Murray invite

Brett Murray is a Pretoria-born,  South African artist mostly known for  his steel and  mixed-media  wall sculptures.  He  studied  at  the University of Cape Town Michaelis School of Fine Art where he was awarded his Master of Fine Arts degree in 1988 with distinction. From

1991 to 1994 he established the sculpture department at the University of Stellenbosch. This is his first book documenting his career over the past 30 years as a practicing artist.

This is the ultimate book on all things Brett Murray. Spanning his entire career, Brett Murray’s book boasts both powerful imagery, and reflective texts from his 80s cultural/struggle work, through his career to The Spear; the natural outcome of his art and reflections on injustices past and present.

The book features short introductions  at the start of each body of work, and includes contributions by Roger van Wyk, Michael Smith, Steve Dubin and Njabulo S Ndebele, among others. Each chapter is richly visual and extensively illustrated. The book takes an in-depth look at the artist, and the man.
