Hanno van Zyl is an artist
& an independent designer & illustrator.
Working from the collaborative studio space, Only Today, in Cape Town; his work explores the overlooked narratives of everyday South African objects and spaces with an acutely critical eye. He is particularly influenced by his immediate environment: the little pieces of trash and rubble that gather in gutters, the trinkets found behind the till of spaza shops or the homely façade of a rundown inner city building. This, he views, as a rich cultural playground for a graphic dialogue.
