oil, reflective tape, pencil, staples and thread on canvas
58,5 by 82,5cm


Since graduating in 2017 with a Diploma in Fine Art from the Ruth Prowse School Dlamini has been active in the emerging art community in South Africa, He was amongst the young emerging visual artists who were selected to be part of the RMB talent unlocked-programme in association with both the VANSA and the Assemblage, in the 2019 Turbine Art Fair. Dlamini has participated in group shows at the FNB Joburg Art Fair in 2018, and was awarded the 2018 David Koloane award from the Bag Factory Artist Studios and attended the Artist Career Boot-Camp in association with the National Arts Council. Dlamini made through to the semi-finals of the prestigious Absa L’atelier Art competition- 2018.

In his practice, Dlamini uses his fascination with pigments of oil paints and mixed media as an opportunity to explore on the sensibility and vulnerability of the human body, the crippled township living, the injustice of police brutality and society as a whole, stitching together these subject matters, in essence, to bring awareness about the broken body and particularly focusing on memory loss. These topics stem from his own personal experiences of illness, violent bodily harm and near-death experiences.


This lot is featured as one of the finalists for the Emerging Painting Invitational Prize (EPI). This is an international art platform developed by the Emerging African Art Galleries Association (EAAGA) to support and recognise the excellence of emerging painters living and working on the continent.
