AYANDA MABULU

Born 1981, King William’s Town, Eastern Cape, South Africa

Lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa
 

Ayanda Mabulu paints the undocumented lives of the anonymous masses of under-represented South Africans. His uncompromising mixed-media paintings narrate the extremes of a society rife with disparities. A self-taught poet and painter, he tells stories laced with symbolism of racism, poverty and corruption of power in the hope of effecting radical societal change. The overt expression that frames Mabulu’s work further clarifies his intention to telling his raw and no-holds-barred truth. The inhabitants of the paintings play out violent and ghastly scenes alongside the appended phonetic textual elements that tend to sharpen the lashing dialect of the work.

TROUBLEMAKER, ART IS OUR LAST HOPE, the work of Ayanda Mabulu  at the DuSable Museum, Chicago 

25 September until March '19
