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.
