A young soul with a vision and a charm. A space of creation and reflection in a vibrant city. A bond of curiosity and admiration between us. Not only is 28 year old Stuart Dods a talented artist and a deep thinker, he's also easy on the eye and an all-round lovely human. I spent a day with him at his studio in Cape Town where we got to know each other a little better. His work is heavily influenced by his belief in the importance of independence and the power of unity. Shapes transcend the individual and embraces interconnectedness, creating a harmonious bridge across differences. For Stuart, art is not just about self-expression, but also about the collective human experience.
