The first major series of monographs on contemporary South African artists by a South African publisher, TAXI Art Books have become an invaluable resource to educators and individuals both in South Africa and abroad.
The TAXI series, with the associated Educational Supplements, was launched in 2000 and comprises fifteen monographs on South African artists. Each Educational Supplement presents an introduction to and explanation of the artistâ€™s unique working method. This is followed by a number of worksheets containing conceptual and practical projects that refer to the artist.
The TAXI Art Book series has been sponsored by Pro Helvetia â€“ Arts Council of Switzerland, the French Institute, the Royal Netherlands Embassy, the Arts and Culture Trust, the National Arts Council and David Krut Arts Resource, and is published by David Krut Publishing.
