2021 Standard Bank Young Artists for Performance Art, Gavin Krastin is a performance artist, scenographer and arts educator. The National Arts Festival Artistic Committee notes that he has “revitalised the field” of performance art by managing to be “risky and brave” and, at the same time, “mindful and meticulous” – thus “opening the door” for a new generation of artists. For South African artists who have made their mark on the arts scene, there can be no more sought-after accolade than receiving a Standard Bank Young Artist (SBYA) award.
