Tony Gum: Is She the Coolest Girl in Cape Town?
Because she’s got style and talent and media savvy.
This South African artist has a unique eye and style that is all her own, while still honoring artists like Fridha Kahlo, 70’s Jamaican movie Rockers and current indie hipster movie makers.
With an Instagram page likening herself to a Wes Anderson palette featuring black people, not only is Tony Gum cool but she is media savvy as hell, too. Hence why magazines like Vogue are highlighting her and PULSE New York has nominated her for their PRIZE this year. Gum will showcase her work for the first time in the U.S. this month, in NYC. Telling her story her way, melding her personal style and her work, not only is she one to watch, but she is one to be inspired by.
