SOBATHATHU - THE THREE OF US (article first published : 2008-04-24)

The African Art Centre is currently hosting Sobathathu - The Three of Us, an exhibition of paintings by Welcome Danca, Sibusiso Duma and Bheki Khambule.

Welcome Danca and Sibusiso Duma were students of the late Trevor Makhoba who noticed and nourished their talent while they were still at school.

Sibusiso Duma has developed his own style which is reminiscent of Makhoba’s social realism with surrealist overtones, but with a more gentle comment on social mores. He is now using only the best paint and canvas and his work has developed a depth and scale not seen before.

Welcome Danca continues the Makhoba tradition of social comment. In his recent work he explores the darker side of life and comments on hypocrisy of some previously sacrosanct institutions.

Bheki Kambule is new on the scene and is under the wings of Welcome and Sibusiso. His work is beginning to be noticed and he has recently been selected as a Nivea Competition finalist.

The title of the exhibition is reminiscent of the three musketeers as the three artists share studio space. Sobathathu - The Three of Us runs at the African Art Centre in Florida Road until May 3. More information on 031 312 3805.
