UPSTAIRS on Bree was designed by us with the goal of creating a large open space that would dramatize the art on display in the gallery as well as fit the profile of a New York, Urban Style space.

The venue is now used for a range of events and the interior is well-suited for all occasions, for example the latest event on offer, BusyBees@Bree is an avant-garde "art-invasion”, aimed at creating awareness of the desperate state and decline of the bee population, and the potential devastating impact on the environment and agriculture in South Africa and the rest of the world.

The exhibition, officially launches in March 2018, pop in at the gallery this First Thursday for a first look at what will be on offer

We love seeing spaces we designed being put to such great use!


Creating your own style

Developing your own style through design is a journey and isn't something that happens immediately. It comes naturally and over time. As an artist, it can be highly beneficial to have your own signature style. One needs to always ask, who are you designing for? Understanding your client's needs is vital. In this article, we discuss creating your own style and the style of a Wildetect. 


When it comes to aesthetics, creating something magnificent can be a great way to express your style. A style begins when a concept, an idea. One can go wild with multiple techniques and styles. Experimenting is key and finding what works for you as an individual. A style should never be forced. It comes from an idea that has been developed. When one has developed a style, it is important to keep an open mind. There will be times requiring you to adapt and adjust to other circumstances such as designing for certain clients.    


Creating a style is a continuous process as well as an individual journey for each artist. The challenge is staying interested and focused throughout the way and pushing one's skills to the maximum. Each artist has their own journey and reflects it in their work often creating a style. We are able to reflect our environment and personal experiences.

Art is a communication of whats going on in one's head, better known as a language. Wildetecture is all about creating an individual artistic identity within an African continent setting. A reflection of Africa's flora and fauna environments. The cultural heritage is also significant in Wildetecture designs.

An artist is always growing and improving - the journey is life-long. Cherish it.
