Ralph Ziman | The Casspir Project

by Paulette Ely

Ralph Ziman has all of our attention with his newest installation The Casspir Project. With bright colors and extreme attention to detail on an industrial military vehicle, the project embodies the contrast of a legacy of oppression in South Africa with the rainbow of culture within this artistry. Debuting in LA this February, this project was no easy task as such a vehicle requires an registration in armory defining the lengths this South Africa born Angelino will go for his vision. See this installation with photographs and a full documentary film at The Rendon Gallery February 7 through March 7. Ziman shows us all that as fear reaches beauty, the artistry is influential beyond the eye.
