Atang Tshikare | A better life


by Atang Tshikare
South Africa


Printed on gallery quality Hahnemühle Photo Rag Bright White, 310 grams or similar paper. Custom trimmed with 25 mm border for framing.
About this work:
The work shows the juxtaposition of Cape Town living, where one side of the mountain is high cost living and the other side is a total opposite. It's about the people drowning in congestion of debt versus the ones with old money that are almost living in space because they have all capabilities which gives them an augmented reality.
