Su Opperman is a multi-disciplinary artist whose focus rests predominantly on painting as a form of gestural expression and comic art as a unique aesthetic tool through which to question the current socio-economic South African landscape.

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. After receiving her BA in Fine Arts from NMMU, she went on to finish her MA at Stellenbosch University in the field of Stream Illustration.

Opperman has participated in variety exhibitions and residencies, ranging from Absa L’atelier and the Wits Art Museum to the Kunsthal Light Project.
