Banele Khoza, our Johannes Stegmann mentee, will have a solo project at the Pretoria Art Museum. This opens at 9 July 2016 at 11:00.
Khoza presents an exhibition, consisting of paintings, drawings, digital prints and an installation. The exhibition will be opened by Jan Van der Merwe (Artist and Senior Lecture at Tshwane University of Technology). A project endorsed by the For Sale Projects under the umbrella of the Pretoria Art Museum.
Khoza creates ghostly works in watercolour and sharper, yet still surreal, digital illustrations. Although his images contain elements of escapism and fantasy, they speak to his own experiences – primarily in relation to identity issues and the way gender is presented and performed. Khoza is currently being mentored by acclaimed artist Colbert Mashile, who is mentoring him for is solo exhibition in March 2017 at Lizamore Gallery.
