One can also experience the previous Absa Gallery art exhibitions as 3D Tours here. “Absa has always supported the visual arts and nurtured young artistic talent across the continent through our art sponsorships, such as the Absa L’Atelier art competition for the past 34 years – Africa’s first digital art competition, and the Absa Gallery. More than simply preserving the continent’s art legacy, we remain committed to shining the spotlight on works of young African artists to help them to continue to bring their Africanacity to life,” he says.
Previous Absa L’Atelier winners, Nkensani Rihlampfu (2019 Absa L’Atelier Ambassador), Phoka Nyokong (2019 Absa L’Atelier Gerard Sekoto winner), Mongezi Ncaphayi (2013 Absa L’Atelier Gerard Sekoto winner) and Marco Cianfanelli (2002 Absa L’Atelier winner), are listed among the artists, as well as Asanda Kupa, Ramarutha Makoba, Karla Nixon, Shenaz Mahomed and Patrick Mautloa.
