Ari Hersch cannot be confined to a single medium; a self-taught artist who experiments with many formats, as well as a classically trained interior architect and designer, he constantly attempts to push the boundaries of his creative palette, Hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa, Hersch has been passionate about art since a young age — having studied South African masters such as Gerard Sekoto, George Pemba and Ben Macala, who heavily influenced his style and work. He has been featured in solo and group exhibitions at international galleries and shows. Mixing media and working with various materials, experimentation and progression are Hersch’s mantras.
