Hero, the exhibition by South African artist Kevin Mackintosh will open on the 22nd of February 2020, 6:00 – 9:00pm at Deepest Darkest Gallery in Cape Town.
This body of work is a series of hyper styled portraits inspired by the work of African photographers like the Seydou Keïta, Malick Sidibé, and Sanlé Sory. It was created over a 5 year period across various locations in Africa, in collaboration with well known set designer Daryl McGregor.
Kevin Mackintosh was born in Africa, but left 15 years ago for the United Kingdom, ( where he lives, dividing his time between New York , London and Paris)
While his work expresses a personal ‘universe’ that combines an interest in European cinema, theatre and art, there is something about the largesse of his native country’s landscape and its many cultures which has left indelible marks.
Kevin’s work has been exhibited across the world, both in solo and group exhibitions and published in many photographic journals, and books. Some of his clients include Vogue magazine, GQ, Bolshoi ballet Company, Christies to name a few.
