Gallery 2 (situated in the Art Strip on Jan Smuts Avenue) is proud to showcase a solo exhibition by Themba Khumalo.
The exhibition will open on the 3rd March 2016!
Themba Benedict Khumalo was born in 1987 16 February in Soweto. He graduated in printmaking at Artist Proof Studio where he obtained a design foundation certificate and then went on to do a professional printmaking development course under the sponsorship of Pinpoint One at artist proof studio (2009). He was an intern in the silkscreen unit and the special project team. He also has an interest in exploring other mediums such as charcoal drawings and painting.
He has been involved in a number of group exhibitions, commissions and special projects, such as a mural in the Eastern Cape and Isolate del Cinema festival at Rome, Italy.
My work talks about issues and challenges one faces in the big city. I also acknowledge the foundation and direction that has been given to me from home. I am who I am because of my upbringing.
I use techniques such as etchings, drypoint and monoprint because I can achieve strong, intense line, different effects and textures. I also get unexpected false bites, which represent the imitation of life – the fact you can’t predict what’s going to happen tomorrow.
