Rubber and ribbon

From rural roots to international recognition, we look forward to welcoming Nicholas Hlobo to Design Indaba Conference 2013.

Designing sculptures which tend to provoke due to their structural illusions, Nicholas Hlobo has gained international recognition and a firm following. 

Working with a variety of materials, using rubber and ribbon as the main component, Hlobo creates truly unique and eye-catching pieces, which have led him to win many awards and exhibit at numerous exhibitions worldwide. 

I am constantly startled by people's responses to my work. I never thought my work would be regarded as that important, says Hlobo. 

We look forward to welcoming Hlobo to Design Indaba Conference 2013
