PLUMBER MBOKAZI (article first published : 2001-05-23)

An exhibition of prints and paintings by Plumber Mbokazi will run in the BAT Centre’s Democratic Gallery from June 8 to July 8.

In 1985, veteran Umlazi-born and self-taught artist, Plumber Mbokazi, joined the Community Arts Project where he received training and guidance from teachers like Bruno Brincat and Dennis Purvis. When the centre closed in 1987, he started teaching himself with books borrowed from libraries.

In 1992, he was selected to be part of a group of 15 artists chosen to attend printmaking classes at Technikon Natal. The course covered woodcut, silk screen, etching, linocut and lithograph techniques and Plumber was taught by John Roome, Marhai Worsarman, Jan Jordaan and Greg Hayes.

His works have appeared on various exhibitions in Durban including those at the Durban Art Gallery, NSA Galleries and African Art Centre. When not working on his own pieces, Plumber Mbokazi teaches art to a group of children from his neighbourhood.
