Susan Opperman is a multi-disciplinary artist whose focus rests predominantly on painting as a form of gestural expression and underground comic art as a unique aesthetic tool through which to question current South African society. A love of comics is what first inspired her to explore other art making processes as alternative ways to convey meaning and aspects of story. She has participated in a
variety of exhibitions, residencies and collaborative projects ranging from animation and fine art to collaborative graphic novels. Currently, she fulfils the position of Head of Department for Animation and Visual Effects at the SAE Institute in Cape Town.
