This work examines the dilemma of traditional, nutritious food sources in Africa in this case Maas (Ikomazi) versus the infiltration of far more expensive less healthy fastfood. Maas is a traditional fermented yogurt type food/drink. Mickey refers to the home of fastfood. The symbols relater to various aspects of this dilemma." Ann-Gadd

Cape Town, South Africa

Ann is a vibrant and prolific artist and author. She was voted in 2020 as one of South Africa's top 50 female artists. 
She initially became known for her ‘ewe/sheep’ series of work. Whilst maintaining her ironic humour she has painted a number of other series of works, including ‘Wild Life’ ‘Zulu Lulu’ and a 'Going to the Dogs' series. 
A reoccurring theme in her work is a play on words and use of popular jargon. Her quirky, humorous, yet profoundly insightful art, allows the viewer not only to laugh at themselves, but to examine many of the absurd aspects of life. 
She has written and/or illustrated 22 books.
