Diasec

120 x 110 cm

I notice more and more that my signature style is to create compelling, color-soaked, eye-catching surfaces that draw the viewer closer with my use of familiar pop culture and consumer culture references. On closer inspection, these references are never what they seem and the idea is always to celebrate, highlight, or question topical and social issues in this new age we find ourselves in.
In this piece, the popular M&M’s gets the Fadiel Hermans workover and the overall idea is to celebrate the pride and strength of the women on this continent.

    Within South Africa we courier your artwork to your door - the shipping cost will show at the checkout.

    When shipping art internationally, two primary options are commonly considered: crated and rolled. Crating involves securely packaging the artwork in a custom-built crate, providing maximum protection against physical damage but often resulting in higher shipping costs due to size and weight.
    On the other hand, rolling art involves taking stretched paintings off the frame, carefully wrapping the artwork and placing it in a protective tube. This method is more cost-effective and suitable for flexible pieces.
    Choosing between crating and rolling depends on the specific artwork's size, fragility, and budget, as well as the destination's shipping requirements and regulations.

    We will be in touch regarding the best options for you.

    Virtual hanging of art is an innovative service we offer that allows art enthusiasts and collectors to visualize how artworks will appear in their desired spaces before making a purchase. We digitally place the selected artworks on your walls, in the correct scale to achieve the desired aesthetic. This service not only helps in making informed decisions but also enhances the overall art-buying experience, providing a realistic preview of the final result and ensuring that the chosen artworks harmonize with the surrounding decor.

    Description

    Description of a Diasec

    A Diasec consists of 3 layers; an aluminium dibond board as the support material, the image on photographic paper (or an inkjet print), and a layer of acrylic glass.

    The image gets onto the photographic paper via laser light and the paper gets developed as conventional photographic paper in previous times.

    The paper used for the Diasec we sell is Fuji Chrystal Archival Paper, which has a specific glow and enhances the colours. Once finished, the image gets pasted on the aluminium dibond board and in a cleanroom covered with acrylic glass.

    Fuji gives a 75-year guarantee on colourfastness of the image and the acrylic glass filters around 90% of UV light.

    There are only very few companies worldwide who are able to produce Diasec in high quality. Because of this, we have all our Diasec made in Germany.

    Fadiel Hermans

    Fadiel Hermans

    Fadiel Hermans was born in Cape Town’s Bo Kaap in 1971. An artist who infuses every canvas with memories of his childhood, marked by challenging times that remain vivid in his mind. His artworks prominently feature people and images from his surroundings.

    Essentially, his work serves as a reflection of his memories and experiences, capturing specific colors, light and shadow play, ideas, and emotions he aims to convey. The artist’s creativity, he believes, stems from his unique perspective on things.

    Painting has been a constant passion in Fadiel Hermans’ life, supported by his parents who provided him with paper and colors from a young age. His passion for painting is deeply rooted in his personal quest to understand life, his environment, and his experiences.

    The artist continually explores various stories and images swirling in his mind, striving to capture them on canvas, each artwork telling a story. Despite a brief stint in graphic design and work in the printing industry, with no formal training in fine art, Fadiel Hermans pursued his dream of a full-time art career.

    Working mainly with acrylic and spray paint, his artworks are a vibrant visual delight. With a rich narrative style, his paintings invite viewers to interpret multiple storylines, often open-ended, allowing for personal interpretations. Fadiel enjoys providing a complete storyboard to his works, drawing from his own life experiences.

    His paintings blend elements of street art, pop art, and graphic design, infused with contemporary culture and satirical elements. In 2023, a curator team selected Fadiel Hermans for a limited edition, high-quality Diasec series of artworks, marking a significant milestone in his artistic journey.

    Fadiel Hermans is represented by The Artists Gallery in Cape Town.
