From Zanele Muholi’s striking portraits of queer black South African women - which became ubiquitous on the international art circuit - to graffiti writer Faith 47’s visually commanding and socially conscious murals across global surfaces, 2014 was an interesting year for South African women around the art world. Working from an extensive list, Mail & Guardian arts and culture writer Stefanie Jason picks out nine women on South Africa’s arts scene to look out for in the new year.

Stefanie Jason writes art stories when she’s not rumbling through Johannesburg's dusty thrift store stockpiles and gallivanting around the city’s many visual art galleries. You can follow her on Twitter @StefJason.
