AFRICA CAPITALS (article first published : 2007-02-7)

Edoardo di Muro will present an exhibition titled Africa Capitals in the Menzi Mchunu Gallery at the BAT Centre.

The exhibition is of lithograph drawings by this Italian-born artist.

Born in Cuneo, northern Italy in 1944, his works have been exhibited in many African countries as well as in France, Italy and the United States. A long-time resident of Dakar, Edoardo di Muro now lives in Italy.

An initial series of drawings was published in 1990 under the title Afrique (Editions Hatier) and a second one came out in 1995 in a book entitled Afrique Capitals (Editions, Sepia, Paris). Edoardo di Muro's drawings are appreciated for both their artistic and documentary value.

Beneath his pen, urban Africa flows onto the drawing with all its diversity of living quarters, ethnic influences and social contrasts carrying the humour and high spirits of its inhabitants.

Africa Capitals runs from February 9 to March 10.
