(b 1986South Africa. Lives and works in Cape Town)
Ferdinand's work includes paintings, drawings and sculpture. His subjects are often dislocated from the reality and therefore take on a new character.
"Somewhere between the concepts of the sublime, surreality, dystopia, the archetype, and the collective and individual unconscious, I find myself drawing from different levels of experience. My work is about an existential pathos in a contemporary world that carries potent traces of the grand modernist constructs."
