Dan Halter

Dan Halter makes wordplay paintings and collages using woven plastic bags, a nod to the heavy-laden refugees and roadside pedlars the artist meets along South Africa’s border with Zimbabwe. Dan Halter was born in Zimbabwe in 1977. In 2001 he graduated from the University of Cape Town with a BFA.

His solo exhibitions include Take Me to Your Leader 2006 (João Ferreira Gallery, Cape Town), Never say Never 2008 (Derbylius Gallery, Milan), Double Entry 2010, The Truth Lies Here 2012 and The Original is Unfaithful to The Translation 2015 (Whatiftheworld Gallery, Cape Town).
