Smile Artists Africa is an initiative that was created with the desire amongst the artist community to contribute to social development in South Africa. The idea behind this initiative is in support of raising resources for South African breast cancer survivors, funding breast reconstruction, raising awareness against Breast Cancer, and to encourage breast cancer screening.
Renowned and rising artists have responded to the call and donated works to be sold in aid of empowering female cancer survivors. The attendance at this event is highlighted by the presence of personalities in the art industry, prominent art investors and local media personalities.
This momentous event was launched in December 2020 and rallied by the emblematic plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Monaisa. His vision is basically to give theCancer victims a second chance at life. The launch event was anticipated to raise over R300,000.00 in funds, which was exceeded with surplus purchases of multiple exclusive artworks which included the bidding on pieces from Azael Langa, Treatwell Mnisi, Olwethu De Vos, Cromwell Ngobeni, Sanusi Olatunji and GreatJoy Ndlovu. As a result, a 39-year-old breast cancer survivor was afforded reconstructive breast surgery in March 21st, 2021.
It is for this reason that Smile Artists Africa is opening doors to more opportunities which will help change more people's lives. From 25th September 2021, the Smile Artists Africa Project will be hosting an Online Art Auction coupled with a Fashion and Art Extravaganza as an on-the-ground activation to raise brand awareness and garner more support for the cause. Both events will be used to raise funds for further breast reconstruction surgery and with October being the Breast Cancer awareness month, this auction will set the tone for the month, as well as create awareness for Breast Cancer.The event, also known as Fusion Art Fashion and sponsored by Sanlam Private Wealth, will take place at the upmarket Porsche Centre in Kyalami on September 25. It will feature celebrated and upcoming fashion designer/brands including Maxhosa, Naked Ape, Siko Republic, Bathini Designs, LSJ designs, Fabro Sandz, Africa Your Time is Now and ARA Emporium. Influential aspirant leaders will be dressed by prominent cutting-edge designers mentioned above and interact with the attendees in these idyllic creations.
