KAY HASSAN

BIOGRAPHY

Kay Hassan (b.1956, Johannesbourg) is a South African artist based in Johannesbourg.

Hassan is best known for large-scale paper constructions, such as the one included in the exhibition. He explained how he makes them: “In the township there are lots of billboards, for alcohol, beer, Pepsi Cola, a lot of that. What I do is I deconstruct and then construct my own forms. I just start building, ripping, and layering, until I come to a subject. It is a dry form of painting. I rely on the pixelation, colors, texture, tones, so no paint. I paint with paper.”

 

Hassan has exhibited his work internationally in a career spanning over 30 years.  On top of having taken part in numerous solo and group exhibition, his work can also be found in public collections including: National Gallery of Canada, Ontario, Canada; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota; High Museum, Atlanta, Georgia; National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; The Walther Collection, New York; Daimler Art Collection, Berlin, Germany.
