Supporting local artists

Basani has limited accommodation, and the organisation offers this to one or two artists who, at any given time, really need a place to stay. At the moment, Mthokozizi Myeze and Shokwakhe Mngadi are in residence. Both are artists on their way up — Myeze is a portrait painter who has shown his work at Art in the Park and has had an exhibition at the Tatham Art Gallery, while Mngadi paints buildings, including several well-known sites around the city. The Tatham bought his painting — which incorporates electric lighting — of a 2010 soccer stadium from last year’s Echo bazaar and is currently showing it on the New Acquisitions exhibition at the gallery. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
