Notes

As much a painter as a poet, Wonderboy Nxumalo’s work, whether in ceramic or linocut, is instantly recognizable. With his sgraffito technique or his v-gouge carver, he produced intricate, warm, hilarious fables, animated by naïvely-drawn creatures and annotated by clear-thinking, playful slogans and poems, usually focusing on historical narrative or community concerns.
