Painter Beauchamp works within a framework that interrogates current societal ills and musings against a backdrop of the postcolonial, post-Apartheid and post-“Rainbow Nation” era. His provocative iconography employs popular culture, satire and stereotypes in service of a visual political commentary. Beauchamp’s current work is an extension of his ongoing ‘Paradyse of the damned’ series. He seeks to interrogate the post-apartheid South African government embattled within itself, the disconnect with its people and our vexed social climate under this new viral threat, mired by false news and heightened insecurities over corruption.
