Our second featured artist in our “MEET THE ARTIST FEATURE” is Andrew Orapeleng Ntshabele

I have a deep love and passion for visual art which was developed

at a tender age and has grown ever since and it is the key I have found in fulfilling my life’s purpose.

The subject matter of my paintings deals with, the negative
effects of rapid urbanization and the pressures and the strains on the people I encounter and interact with on a daily basis as they go about their business. My paintings capture these people in their daily environments and are in a sense a homage to them and to the city. The people that I paint are based in the Johannesburg central business district and its outskirts.

ImageAndrew was born in the small rural town of Moruleng in the North West province of South Africa. In his formative years his family moved to the city of Johannesburg amongst the hustle and bustle of the urban life, where he currently resides.

 

To view more of Andrews work, he will be exhibiting at Nex Dor Resturant on Vilakazi Street, Orlando West. The exhibition will run from the 20th of March till  20 April 2013.
