Adrian Fortuin (b. 1994) is a Johannesburg-based artist whose work explores the relationship between intuition, intersubjectivity, identity, image-making and abstraction. Working in a range of media, the scope of which is informed by a primarily conceptual approach, Fortuin is interested in the limits of representation and the legacies of identity and experience connected to family, ancestry, community, and society more broadly. His work is strongly informed by the emancipatory potential of abstraction in varying degrees.
