The Design Share Party is a monthly gathering where we invite creatives and creative people to come share their work and inspiration.

On the 18th of June 2016 we feature

was born to an extroverted woman of song who’s independence was before her time. At the age of 6 months Moon found love in front of the camera. She quickly made a name for herself in the Durban music scene, performing at festivals across KwaZulu Natal. She has since relocated to Johannesburg where her presence has been no less noticeable. Moonchild has performed alongside artists such as Madala Kunene, Gcina Hlope and Busi Mhlongo. The move to the city of lights has also presented the opportunity to collaborate with the likes of the BLK JKS and Thandiswa Mazwai. - Reverbnation

Laura Windvogel
has spent the past 2 years producing work revolving around the themes of gender roles, sex, greed and lust. With the pseudonym of Lady Skollie, Windvogel explores the complexities of expectations we project onto our romantic and sexual interactions. By highlighting her own, sometimes unrealistic, expectations of these interactions, Windvogel invites the viewer to do the same. The confessional structure of Ask for What You Want emphasizes the importance of familiarizing yourself with your own desire. After graduating with a degree in History of Art and Dutch Literature from the University of Cape Town, Windvogel has exhibited at the Michael Stevenson Gallery (Cpt), Hazard Gallery (Jhb) , the Association for Visual Arts and various independent creative project spaces. -

Johnny Cradle
inhabits a world we all somehow relate to and could never find completely alien. From drunken abandon to critical self-scrutiny, the themes all hold something anyone can touch on; something we have all felt or held dear. Songs are crafted in an almost conversational manner, speaking strongly to the three separate personalities within the band that tessellate to form the band’s own personality. With Tebogo J Mosane on drums, Chris Lombard on guitars and Sakumzi Qumana on synthesizer, keyboards and vocals, the band’s approach of three distinct contributions manifesting as one truly unique and articulate idea has resulted in a body of work both extensive and exquisitely realised. The songs are individually crafted and articulated. -

Osmond Tshuma
is an artist and graphic designer currently furthering his studies at the University of Johannesburg. He has either been studying art in one form or another – Fine Art and graphic design – or accumulating work experience in the industry for just short of a decade. Osmond’s work is informed by his experience as a Zimbabwean immigrant, his keen interest in African history and the endless inspiration he finds in the diverse local cultures of Southern Africa. Here, we find out more. -

This episode is our 3rd at Basha Uhuru Freedom Festival. The Basha festival is presented by Constitution Hill, in partnership with Kalashnikovv Gallery and The Gauteng Film Commission.
