Frikkie Cool Creative: Zander Blom - Update

If you're an avid reader of Frikkie Awesome, you will know that we did a Frikkie Cool Creative post about Zander Blom a few months back and so we thought we would give you an update to what this awesome artist is currently up to! Zander's lastest exhibition "New Paintings" opened on Wednesday 5 September at the Stevenson gallery in Cape Town and will run until 13 October. If you are in Cape Town, get off your bicycle and be sure to go and have a look! It's amazing to be there to get the full effect and scale of these awesome paintings! The gallery hours are: Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturdays 10am to 1pm.
Zander Blom writes:
A quote from Fran├žoise Gilot's biography on Picasso made a lasting impression on me at the end of last year: "[Work] below your means. If you can handle three elements, handle only two. If you can handle ten, then handle only five. In that way the ones you do handle, you handle with more ease, more mastery, and you create a feeling of strength in reserve."
The added benefit of such a limitation in painting is that it has the potential to facilitate a refinement and expansion of one's language and ability. A limitation by its very nature forces one to seek out alternative avenues or ways to solve problems, and in doing so it can open up a range of new possibilities.
After last year's exceptionally colourful paintings I found myself moving back towards a monochromatic palette with newfound drive, purpose, clarity and intent. This year I'm narrowing my focus and sharpening my craft.

So for the Badger fans and Badger newbies, there's some pretty sweet news for you guys!! Honey Badger Bistro has recently launched there new menu... And it's AMAZEBALLS!! 
 
The badgers have clearly been hard at work developing this new menu, cause the dishes that on it are pretty much out of this world. From the R28 Back to Basics breakfast (and it's not near basic at all) to the Gourmet Sandwidches (which taste like awesomeness) to the home made pasta, this menu is seriously next level!! The Honey Badger is also starting to introduce a bunch of cool events, so make sure to check the blog and there Facebook page for all the info you require! In the meantime, have a look at some of these pics of a couple of new dishes they have on offer!!
