LINDIWE XABA (article first published : 2008-06-21)

Lindiwe Xaba was the winner of the 2007 Nivea Art Start Award, an award aimed at emerging artists in KwaZulu-Natal. Supported by Beiersdorf, the makers of Nivea skin-care products, the award has proved invaluable in encouraging professional development for artists through exhibitions at the KZNSA, scholarships, training and links with art training institutions and significant material prizes for the winners.

An exhibition of her work is currently running at the KZNSA. These winning works reflect her professional context she works at the Ardmore Ceramic Studio and also her personal context. Drawing strongly on Zulu culture, her home and natural environment, her work uses imagery and text to paint a multi-faceted environmental portrait of herself in her environment.

The Lindiwe Xaba exhibition runs at the KZNSA Art Gallery until July 5. More information on 031 277 1703, fax 031 201 8051 or cell 082 220 0368 or visit www.kznsagallery.co.za
