Paul du Toit recently worked at the prestigious Dieu Donne Papermill in New York City’s SoHo district, where he created original works in paper pulp.

Dieu Donné Papermill is one of New York's most dynamic art centers dedicated to the creation, promotion and preservation of new contemporary art utilising the hand papermaking process. Throughout its 27-year history Dieu Donné has worked with more than 500 world-renowned contemporary artists like Chuck Close and William Kentridge.

I'm excited to show this specific body of work in South Africa. The works are made from paper pulp captured within a paper background. Very unique with so many new dynamics and qualities.

The last two years has been particularly challenging and fruitful for du Toit in New York City. His solo exhibition in 2004 in Manhattan was very well received, and he followed this with a working program at the Dieu Donne Papermill in SoHo, NYC during October 2005.

NEW YORK ARTS Magazine, Kóan Jeff Baysa: ..."PlanetPaul's close encounter with the Manhattan art world is an auspicious and solid first landing."

During September 2006 a major exhibition of his work will take place at the newly built Art Centre at the University of Johannesburg.
