KULTURE TALK | Lady Skollie


Lady Skollie was born in 1987 in Cape Town, South Africa.

The artist uses ink, watercolour and crayon to defy taboos and talk openly about issues of sex, pleasure, consent, human connection, violence, and abuse. Her work is simultaneously bold and vulnerable, expressing the joy and darkness of the erotic and the duality of human experience.

The artist’s work has been exhibited widely across South Africa, and international solo exhibitions include Lust Politics, Tyburn Gallery, London, UK (2017), Fire with Fire, solo project at FNB Joburg Art Fair, Johannesburg, South Africa, and Mating Dance, solo project at AKAA Art Fair, Paris, France

Lady Skollie has received the 2020 FNB Art Prize. She is the 10th FNB Art Prize recipient, joining a prestigious list of winners since the launch of the prize in 2011.

Her recent exhibition, Bound, is inspired by writings of women in captivity
