NANDA SOOBBEN (article first published : 2004-05-31)

Nanda Soobben, one of South Africa’s most well known cartoonists, will be holding his first exhibition of cartoons for 2004, at Suncoast Casino & Entertainment World (Suncoast) from Sunday 30 May to Sunday 6 June 2004. The week-long exhibition culminates in a Cartoon Jam on Sunday 6 June, when fellow cartoonists on the Suncoast Boardwalk will join Soobben for a day of cartoon fun. Members of the public will have a chance to be a part of the action by having cartoons done of themselves on a massive cartoon artwork.

Over the years Soobben has illustrated “everybody who is anybody”. Form politicians to presidents (including ex-president Nelson Mandela) and sport stars to celebs. Although he started his “graphics” career as a sign writer he is now very definitely established as a cartoonist and has worked for every major newspaper in the region including the Post, The Natal Witness and the Independent on Saturday. He has lived and studied in Brazil, New York and San Francisco where he gained experience and inspiration for his work. He also has work on display in Rio and New York.

Soobben is the founder and creative director of the Centre for Fine Art Animation & Design (CFAD), an art school which offers integrated Fine Art and Graphic Design and also a Higher Diploma in animation. He is currently the cartoonist for the Daily News in Durban.

For more information about the exhibition call Suncoast Marketing on 031 328 3000.
