PAUL ALEX LIVE ON THE DRIVE-TIME SHOW presents a Friday of Superstroke
The manifesto for the Superstroke art movement was written in 2008 by the South African artist Conrad Bo and deals with various forms of how paintings in the movement should be executed. This includes the statement that paintings should be created by using very expressive brush strokes.
The manifesto also deals with photography and states that expressionism is more important than photo-realism. Then the manifesto states that abstract and figurative art is allowed in Superstroke. It goes further and states that certain subject matters are encouraged, and also makes mention of an African theme. Finally the manifesto states that the concept of “art for the sake of art” does not apply, and that members of the movement must produce paintings with texture, and excessive brush or pencil strokes.
