Khaya Witbooi's skateboard art to be shown in Germany
Khaya Witbooi’s first solo exhibition held in March at the Worldart gallery in Cape Town was very successful and attracted attention for all the right reasons.
It has also lead to him being commissioned to do two public art projects – a mural for a cultural centre in Houtbay, Cape Town and a mural for a school in Grabouw, a town about 60km outside Cape Town. A third opportunity that came about as a result of this exhibition is his inclusion in a group show scheduled to take place in Bremerhaven, Germany from 22 June 2013. The show is titled YOUNG VISIONS IN MOTION, curated by Kent Lingeveldt and will feature Witbooi’s work on a skateboard.
The other artists participating are Atang Tshikare, Tattoo artist Rico Swanepoel, Graffiti artist Nardstar and poet Toni Stuart.

Besides his two sold out exhibitions, he also had the good fortune to catch singer Beyoncé Knowles’s eye when she bought a painting of his during a visit to the Cape Town.
