DURBAN-based self-taught artist, Bheki Khambule, has won the Start: The Nivea Art Award for 2008, receiving R20 000 cash at the awards ceremony held on Tuesday night at the KZNSA Gallery, Durban.

Khambule has managed to notch up several achievements, including selling one of his paintings to former minister Ben Ngubane in 2003 at a Decorex Show at the ICC Durban, despite having had no formal training. He won his first competition while in Grade 9 at Hlamvana High School, and in April 2000 was chosen to represent South Africa in New Zealand at a Youth Entrepreneurship conference where he spent two weeks in Christchurch. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
