Nina Torr

Nina Torr was born in Johannesburg in 1987. Torr (formerly working under the pseudonym Andy Wyeth) is an artist/illustrator based in Pretoria. After attaining her BFA from the Parsons School of Design in New York in 2010, Torr returned to South Africa, where she is currently working as an artist and participating in exhibitions, as well as teaching illustration at the Open Window School of Visual Communication. Nina most recently participated in a group exhibition titled Joburg Joburg, at the Joburg Gallery (Johannesburg, March 2014). Selected group shows under the pseudonym Andy Wyeth include Home is Wherever I’m With You at Salon91, (Cape Town, December 2013), and Yay Bee Sea at Wolves (Johannesburg, August 2012). Nina has also held two solo shows as Andy Wyeth, namely Milk and Honey on the Other Side at Wolves (Johannesburg, June 2012) and An Unnatural History at the In Toto Gallery (Johannesburg, November 2012). Other venues where Nina has exhibited include the Kalashnikovv Gallery in Johannesburg with the Mega Bonanza Collective in Mega Bonanza Presents: Maybe You Just Have Bad Taste (July 2013), the CTICC Design Indaba (Cape Town, March 2012), and the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Gallery, in New York, USA during April 2010, which hosted On Site her BFA graduate group exhibition. Torr’s work explores subverted spaces inhabited by characters pursuing a journey of sorts. Her characters insinuate narratives that are suggested yet remain open-ended. The viewer as such becomes a participant in concluding these narratives by engaging with them on a personal level.
