Lives & Works in Johannesburg, South Africa
A seasoned explorer, travel is Trevor Stuurman’s core artistic inspiration. He says, “the more I leave home, the more I realise the power and currency that home has. And I think that in turn makes me a better storyteller because I am able to find pieces of home wherever I go and then create tangible products”. This essence of belonging inspired Stuurman to host his first solo exhibition entitled “home”, a love letter to the Himba women of Namibia, that enjoyed a successful run at the HAZARD gallery in Johannesburg. Stuurman has exhibited in a group exhibition at Digitalia; the art and economy of ideas in San Francisco at the museum of the African diaspora. Stuurman has also curated his own installations; “teleporting into Africa” and “this is home” for the Absolut one source live creative festivals and “this is home” at the Motsepe foundation’s Mandela 100 summit.
Trevor Stuurman will be presented by THK Gallery.
