DANCA AND DUMA AT BAT (article first published : 2003-06-16)

Welcome S'phiwa Danca and Sibusiso Robert Duma, former students of the late acclaimed and award-winning artist Trevor Makhoba, will present their exhibition of recent mixed media works at the BAT Centre.

Welcome S'phiwa Danca is currently following a degree in graphic design at The Durban Institute of Technology (formed after the recent merge of the ML Sultan Technikon and Technikon Natal).

The artist focuses on depicting the traditional Zulu way of life, representing ceremonies and customs he hopes will result in greater public understanding of the Zulu people. Works like The Newborn, Fetching Wood and Grinding Maize celebrate everyday rituals.

S'phiwa has exhibited at a series of venues, including the African Art Centre. His work is represented in prominent collections such as the Campbell Museum, Pietermaritzburg Museum Services, the Durban Art Gallery and the KwaMuhle Museum.

Lacking art materials, Sibusiso Robert Duma started his fledgling career drawing houses and cars on the walls of his family home. Apart from the four-year part time training he received from Trevor Makhoba, Sibusiso is self-taught. He paints images of daily life in the city and surrounding areas. Having exhibited at the African Art Centre on a number of occasions, he presented his first solo show at that venue in 2001. Some of the best examples of his work are to be found in the collections of the Durban Art Gallery and Kwamuhle Museum.

The exhibition will be opened by artSMart Editor Caroline Smart (also Editor of D'ARTS Magazine) in the BAT Centre’s Menzi Mchunu Gallery on June 19 at 18h00 and will run until July 18. More information from Nonto Ntombela, BAT Gallery Assistant Curator, on 031 332 0451.
