EZEQUIEL IN CHICAGO (article first published : 2003-06-25)

Former BAT Resident Artist Ezequiel Mabote is currently based in Chicago where he is exhibiting his works.

The temporary move came about when he met Tracye Campbell who works for WTTW, channel 11. She took photographs of Ezequiel’s work and a video of him working at the studio and promised to promote him back home in Chicago.

Some months later, Ezequiel was invited to exhibit in Seattle and thereafter in New York. Once in the US, he contacted Tracye and she suggested that he come to Chicago to exhibit and she would introduce him to the right contacts. This was a successful move and Ezequiel has sold many works.

He will participate for the second time in the international African Caribbean festival held on the first week of July and expects to have a month-long exhibition from September 4 in one of the new galleries in Chicago.

He is hoping to enrol at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to get a degree of fine art in printmedia but is waiting to find out if he can have a student visa.

He is heartened by the support and help he has received from many quarters but misses Africa and, particularly Durban.
