'I am inspired by the archbishop’s life journey and in particular his capacity for forgiveness. This quote stood out for me: “forgiving is not forgetting; it’s actually remembering and not using your right to hit back”. The message I have tried to convey this message in my artwork is. There is no future if we cannot forgive and move on. In my work there are pieces of paper that collect to form a 90 which references the archbishop this year.' –Samukelo Gqola

Samukelo Gqola was born in 1997 in Soweto, Johannesburg. He joined Artist Proof Studio in 2018 where he has had opportunities to work in the Special Projects Unit working on corporate commissions.
