Isabeau Sophia Joubert is a 21 year old South African artist, specialising in oil painting and mixed media. Born in Lima, Peru and having lived in Gaborone, Botswana; Montevideo, Uruguay; New Delhi, India; and currently residing in Tshwane, South Africa; Joubert is in the process of completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts at the University of Pretoria.
Drawing inspiration from her travels and multicultural immersions, Joubert’s artworks explore themes of questioned identity, inner turmoil and displacement in an uncertain and ever-changing world.
Her fresh entry into the South African art world explains a limited number of featured exhibitions, including a 2020 Alter Ego Sculpture Exhibition at the ArtBox Gallery in Pretoria, as well as a 2021 exhibition at the University of Pretoria. Joubert was nominated as one of 10 selected artists for the Turbine Art Fair Unearthed Mentorship, ending in a group exhibition in Johannesburg’s Turbine Art Fair at the end of September, 2021.
