Human Canvas - Cape Town, South Africa from meme on Vimeo.
It was a great exhibition and thanks to Manuela, Valentina, Mark and Brandon and their hard work. I got to slack off and go diving with a bunch of jet lagged tattoists and great white sharks (i don't know which was scarier) while they set up our artshow... thanks guys!!!
Take a look through the SIX photo gallery from 2009.

The Skulls exhibition pieces were auctioned off and the proceeds went to MaAfrika Tikkun a non governmental, not for profit agency that supports the development of less fortunate children and orphans in rural Africa.
For more on SIX, if you weren't there, and even if you were there.. a couple of cool slideshows and other press:
Photos from Ralph and Leora at Art Jamming who were gracious enough to allow us to Art Fusion Experiment in their space in Cape Town. They are the coolest people and if you want to hold an art event in Cape Town, get hold of them!
