Working across multiple disciplines, artist Bella Knemeyer (b. 1991) bridges research and practice with work pivoting around the craft of everyday urbanism, placemaking, material flows and the politics of public space. She works between studio practice and urban studies at the African Centre for Cities based at the University of Cape Town.

Fascinated by the complexity of city-making and its intersections of culture, the built and natural environments, she has pursued various studies to shape an interdisciplinary approach to engaging urbanism. In 2017 she coupled a BAFA, majoring in sculpture from the University of Cape Town, with a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Edinburgh.
