STEPHEN ROSIN
Biography

Rosin was born into the turmoil of the Bush war in Rhodesia in 1975. He graduated cum laude with a B.tech degree in Fine Art from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in 1999 and was the 2009 winner of the prestigious Absa l'Atelier art competition.

His artistic practice is characterized by a conceptual approach to issues involving Globalization, the Central Banking system, the Superstition that he believes is Government, and the staged-show that surrounds it all. He sees his work as a vehicle for exposing this 'show' as the spectacle that it is and is fast fashioning himself as somewhat of a court-jester on the local art scene.

His work is held in the Sasol, Telkom and Absa corporate art collections, as well as in the permanent collections of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Art Museum and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.

He currently lives and works in the Crags in the Western Cape
