03 Sep Claude Chandler – Meet the Artist
From an early age Claude Chandler was immersed in the Durban art world, with both of his parents being talented local artists and prominent figures in the art scene. He grew up in galleries and studios, and was constantly surrounded by artists. At gallery openings he would swoop through the crowd in his batman suit.
His journey continued into his tertiary studies when he decided to study Fine Art at the Durban University of Technology.
After Graduating in 2011, Claude moved to Cape Town to pursue his art career. He was a finalist for the 2013 SPI Portrait Awards and has participated in numerous art fairs and group shows with two sell-out solo exhibitions at WorldArt Gallery. Since 2017 Claude has also started producing a number of murals in Cape Town and has slowing been building a portfolio of street art works.
In 2018 he also began a new venture with Blended Audio, hosting a visual arts podcast called Art Pod.
He currently works from SideTrack Studios a creative collective he started in 2020 which he runs and managers.
