“I am inspired by how people choose or are forced to live their lives; I focus on these life coincidences, when things are planned or unplanned and the results that come. I hope that when people look at my work they identify with these issues, so the work creates awareness and a dialogue that is worthy of being discussed.” -Nobukho Nqaba
Nobukho Nqaba was born in Butterworth, Eastern Cape (1992) and moved to Grabouw (1998) where she attended a farm school for three years. Nqaba graduated from Michaelis School of Fine Art (UCT) in 2012. In the same year she was awarded the Tierney Fellowship, mentored by Svea Josephy and Jean Brundrit. Nqaba went on to complete her postgraduate diploma in teaching (also at UCT).
This event is free and open to the public.
