SOLO EXHIBITION WITH GAVIN RAIN (3 - 31 October 2019)

Most observers of art are familiar with Gavin Rain’s arrangements of colourful dots that surprise by morphing into portraits of iconic people when they step back or look at the paintings through the camera on their cell phones. This style of painting has won Rain accolades the world over with galleries in major cities regularly showing his paintings at exhibitions and art fairs. As a result he has not had a solo exhibition in South Africa since 2009 and WORLDART is pleased to host his first since then at its gallery in Cape Town. The exhibition will open on Thursday 3 October and will run through to 31 October 2019.
