Anton Kannemyer (South Africa) 1967 –


A well respected SA comic artist and co-founder of Bitter Comix. The zeal of preaching a new doctrine, complete with its own style, codes and insider jokes comes through in all of his work. Kannemeyer’s religion is the comic. Kannemeyer’s language is satire. The 2012 lithographs consist of portraits of Yolandi Vi$$er and Ninja, from Die Antwoord, a futuristic rap-rave crew from South Africa with a huge international and local following. Anton Kannemeyer’s Bitter Comix work is a two dimensional matching of what Die Antwoord have done with sound and performance. A chance match “made in heaven”. Excerpt taken from
