A project dedicated to the extraordinary talent of revered artist and cartoonist, Derek Bauer. Bauer was a political cartoonist, graphic activist and artist who became well-known for his inherently irreverent cartoons and caricatures of politicians and other prominent figures during the troubled 80s of Apartheid South Africa. He expressed his independent and challenging views through the critical art of cartooning.
His works remained untouched for more than a decade after his untimely death in 2001. Bauer’s penmanship and extraordinary legacy could not be ignored for long. The Derek Bauer Estate Editions is an endeavour to once again showcase his masterful abilities and to pay homage to his art - a much-anticipated event and one long overdue according to Hayden Proud, Curator of the Iziko Museums in Cape Town, South Africa.
The Derek Bauer Edition is dedicated to his extraordinary skill. We conceptualised, designed and developed the Derek Bauer brand order to create awareness of the project, but also to work as a platform from which to market, promote and sell the incredible work of Derek Bauer. In addition, we designed a website and event managed the subsequent launch and exhibition of his full body of works.
