Four artists showcased their works of art to Observatory locals at the Pop Up Place last week.

The colourful art pieces, all with one message in common, showcased the Khoi culture in its true form.

Donovan Julius, Bryne Newfeldt, Stanley Grootboom and Anthony Roach, all identified as Khoi, wanted to raise awareness on how beautiful their culture is.

“Growing up I used to think that I am half black and half white with no heritage. When I found out that I am actually Khoi, I was proud of having a heritage and wanted to embrace it wholeheartedly,” Julius said.

Growing up in a small missionary village in the Northern Cape, Julius said he was inspired by the people around him.

Newfeldt said indigenous art is his calling and wanted to follow it.

“I believe that this is what I was born to do. I want to tell the stories of our forefathers and how they lived so that our youth can see how our ancestors lived and actually follow it,” he said.
