Multidisciplinary creative practitioner, Givan Lötz escapes definition and can usually be found stretching, subverting or otherwise beguiling our understanding of the creative production. He is at once a visual artist and musician who lives and works in Johannesburg. He holds an honours degree in Information Design from the University of Pretoria. In addition to numerous exhibitions, talks and features, Lötz has been included in the ABSA L’Atelier Top 100 in 2012, 2013 and 2014 as well as Design Days Dubai in 2014 and 2015. His most recent records, MAW (2016) and YAW (2017) were released to critical acclaim on Miami-based label Other-Electricities and featured in Iggy Pop’s BBC Radio 6 show. Lötz has been awarded three residencies in the last year from locations as far ranging as Finland, New York and Wyoming.
