Fringe is undeniably the reigning champion of South African pop art, showcasing his artistic prowess through captivating paintings on canvas and intricately crafted figurative sculptures in plastic and bronze. His journey as an artist is a fusion of prolific creativity and well-timed solo exhibitions that have propelled his distinctive series to the forefront of the art world.

The globe has witnessed the resounding success of thirteen major solo exhibitions by Fringe, all of which saw a complete sell-out of his captivating pieces. Born in the late 70s, Fringe made a transition from a background in banking to the illustrious realm of fine art. This shift allowed him to seamlessly blend branding symbols with thought-provoking imagery, resulting in multimedia creations and sculptures that deeply resonate with viewers.

What defines Fringe's trajectory is his unceasing evolution. Each of his exhibitions stands as a testament to his growth as an artist, with every showcase offering a unique and unprecedented experience. His artistic discipline spans a wide range, encompassing the application of oils on canvas, the harmonious fusion of mixed media, and the creation of striking sculptures using resin and bronze.

One of Fringe's notable sculptures, 'Gutinke Meine' [MYLO]—which translates to 'my sweetheart'—exemplifies his masterful skill with both resin and bronze mediums. This artwork serves as a testament to Fringe's ability to transcend traditional boundaries and bridge the gap between materials. 'Gutinke Meine' whispers the soul in the quiet moments, a tender acknowledgment of a cherished connection that transcends the chaos. It becomes the anchor, a guiding light in the intricate journey of self and society. In the dance of personal discovery and the embrace of Stress Narcotika, 'Gutinke Meine' emerges as a steadfast companion navigating the cosmic chaos, weaving a tale of discovery on the outer edges of reality where the enigmatic and the familiar dance in harmony. It is not just a phrase but a whispered promise, a sweetheart in the uncharted territories of the unknown.

Fringe’s solo exhibitions have included the following:

  • The Very Definition (South Africa, Germany 2017)
  • Don’t Blink (South Africa, Germany 2018)
  • Porsche 911 exhibition (Desom Luxembourg, 2019)
  • No Seriously (South Africa , Germany 2020, London 2021).
  • Calculus of Joy (South Africa 2022, Milan 2022, Palermo 2022, Vienna 2022)
  • In the best of all possible worlds (Germany 2023)

His work has also been exhibited at Schloss Monais (Trier, Germany, 2020), Gallery 508 Chelsea (London, 2021) and Luxembourg Art Fair where he was an Art Prize participant (Luxembourg, 2020; 2021).

His international galleries include Scapegoat Gallery (South Africa), The White Room Gallery (Hamptons, US), One Small Gallery (Massachusetts, US), Galerie Augustin (Vienna, Austria), Frank Fluegel Galerie (Kitzbuehel, Austria & Nuremburg, Germany), Vic Gallery (Milan, Italy) and MEC Art Gallery (Palermo, Italy).

His forthcoming exhibition Stress Narcotika will take place in 2024 at Scapegoat Gallery in Johannesburg, White Room Gallery in Hamptons, Gallery Augustine in Vienna and more, to be confirmed.
