Behind the Faces : A Closer Look at Tasneem's Portraits Part 1

Watercolour Portrait by Tasneem Kamies

My mother taught me TO MEET A CHALLENGE:
"What were you thinking? Answer me when I talk to you...Don't talk back to me!"

My mother taught me how to BECOME AN ADULT:
"If you don't eat your vegetables, you'll never grow up.

- Mimi

About this exhibition : KIN mums

This month we dedicate our windows to our beautiful mothers. Each Kin staff member, or 'Angel', chose their favourite picture of their mother-figure which inspired the watercolour glance peering from this window. Created by Taz, the smiling Angel you'll meet inside our Kloof Street Store, these portraits are instinctively guided by a technique of washes, drips and bleeds to create echoing images which resound in the soul.
