777 - An Exhibition of Portraits
The Seven Durban Powers- Biographies
If we still lived in caves Kim would be the one bartering a limited edition clay bowl for a nice big chunk of mammoth. Kim believes in craft and all things handmade and this is not just because Li Edelkoort says it must be so. Kim likes to practice and experiment, to draw, paint, embroider, hammer and photocopy, towards a story that has a happy ending in illustration and design. Most of the time though Kim is Swan's mamma and Scott's lady love.
Roger Jardine has an abiding love of cardigans, corduroy and the colour brown (which he often mistakes for green or grey). He is also quite fond of his fiancé, Sonya. Jardine is fast becoming known for his rock-star photography, most recently a series of portraits for the packaging of Superhotjoy's album The Shindig Fantastico. He lives in a penthouse flat close enough to his workplace – disturbance –to spit on it. Which he does often.
Scott Robertson combines a love of all things glamorous and filthy with a dedication to the purest principles of design. He is a partner in a small design studio called Science, a trio committed to producing quality creatively. Scott's illustrations have appeared in diverse publications ranging from i-Jusi, One Small Seed, SL, and the Design Indaba Magazine to the Leurzers Archive. Besides interests that are unprintable he collects figurines, surfs and is a dab hand in an apron, he is also a proud daddy to his Swan.
Torsten Fehsenfeld is a graphic designer with a love for all things beautiful. Having worked in advertising for a few years he ventured into the music industry where he played in a band with whom he released an album. His illustrations have been published (Blueprint, Le Courrier) and exhibited. Predominantly his work explores multi-media, layered collages, with enough detail, to draw the viewer into closer exploration.
An artist and designer. "I find inspiration and seem to love what other people seem to think is of no use or boring." Other interests include things that make me feel like a kid. Born Cape Town and found lots of love in Durban. Unique like everyone else.
