Artist Olivia Botha speaks about her first collaboration with the David Krut Workshop


In March 2020, Artist Olivia Botha spent some time working closely with David Krut Workshop (DKW) printer, Sarah Hunkin, exploring the monotype technique, experimenting with the unpredictable translation of her mark into print. This inside story reveals Botha’s insights to her first collaboration with the David Krut Workshop.

Olivia Botha, an accomplished multi-disciplinary visual artist working predominately in painting, collage, installation and video performance, has recently expanded her practice into printmaking through a collaboration with the David Krut Workshop (DKW) at Arts on Main in Maboneng, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Prior to Botha’s visit to DKW, which took place in February 2020, and as part of David Krut Projects’ (DKP) programme of seeking out and supporting emerging talent, David Krut and Gallery Director, Amé Bell, had visited Botha in her studio a number of times to gain insight into her practice.
