SIBISI & SHONGWE (article first published : 2002-07-28)

Currently running in the BAT Centre’s Menzi Mcunu Gallery is an exhibition of paintings by Sthembiso Sibisi and Sthembiso Shongwe. A collection of urban landscapes of people in different settings celebrating life, it is the first time that these Umlazi artists have collaborated in a joint exhibition.

Sthembiso Sibisi studied mechanical engineering at Umlazi Technical College before becoming involved in the Printmaking Project at Caversham Press where he worked with master printmaker Malcolm Christian. He now produces limited numbers of edition prints and divides his time between Caversham and the Stepping Stones Studios in Durban.

Sthembiso Shongwe enrolled for Saturday art classes at the Durban Art Workshop at an early age and then acquired a sponsorship to do a bridging course in Art and Design at ML Sultan Technikon. He draws much inspiration from Rastafarian culture.

Titled From the pages of their minds, the exhibition shows two distinct individual styles that co-exist in the name of art. The exhibition runs at the BAT Centre until August 6.
