Artist’s Biography: Anita Seal

After finishing school, I studied fine arts at Potchefstroom, University. Thereafter moved to Johannesburg where I completed a diploma in Fashion Design and Management.

I decided to travel abroad for a year, working in various countries like Israel, Greece and the United Kingdom. This really opened my horizons. when I returned to South Africa, decided to settle in Port Elizabeth.  In the beginning it was difficult not knowing anyone, but gradually started to build my business.

Designing evening and bridal wear was always my passion. Exposure from Miss PE Pageants and The Weekend Post Bridal Fair helped a lot to build my brand.

Part time I also taught fabric painting classes and wish to start teaching again soon.

I have recently established a business venture called Anita Creative Designer, specialising in evening and bridal wear. We create unique gowns, custom made for each client’s needs. Also take part in Fashion Shows with Sophisticate Models and collaborations with Jenny Gault International.

During this lockdown I started exploring possibilities of also becoming a part time artist, luckily, I managed to get a few commissions to do for clients. My creativity was stimulated again and I will continue spending more time in my studio and maybe have an exhibition in the future.

 

My inspiration for this art piece:

Title: EIRINIKOS

(Greek word for Peaceful)

The Greek Mythology has always fascinated me with their mesmerizing stories. Sea and sea creatures have been an inspiration for many paintings I have done in the past.

For this piece I wanted to do a combination of both but with a contemporary meaning.

During these strange times we are living in now, we all need a space to escape and find peace.

My creature was born from the ocean coral rocks rising up from the water meeting angels from heaven giving her wings to float away from all this madness.

Body, mind ans soul can now escape from the harsh reality and become engulfed in soft calming colors with a touch of sparkle.

Her body became like the rocks found on the shoreline, embedded with seashells no longer housing the creatures who lived inside them. Gemstones spill over her body to embellish the her stone-like skin.

Angels gave her power to create inner peace for all who come in contact with her and swim away in tranquility.
