Boeta Phyf is a sculptural artist from Cape Town, South Africa. He is well versed in many mediums, from clay, spray cans, digital illustration and design. Phyf’s recent layered wooden sculpture (or 3D-graffiti) hopes to create an engaging visual environment through colour and form, exploring the range of possibilities allowed through different methods of application. The pieces are saturated with obviousness, mental inertia, local dialect and a ‘street’ sense of humour. By focusing on techniques and materials, Phyf considers making his art a craft which is executed using clear formal rules that refer to a social reality.
