Notes

'My work is created using line and colour to highlight the journey in Archbishop Desmund Tutu’s life, his work and the lives he has touched globally as an active advocate for peace. I am inspired by the quote from ‘The Book of Joy’ which reads: “Wherever you have friends, that’s your country. Wherever you receive love, that’s your home”. I created an image of the Archbishop and Dalai Lama which I feel befits the above statement. Most of my work centres on the perspective of the Nguni which explores the connections we have with space and a greater universe.' –Mzuvukile Norman Nxuseka

Mzuvukile Norman Nxuseka was born in 1982 in Central Western Jabavu, Soweto, Johannesburg. He is currently completing the Senior Graduate Programme at Artist Proof Studio. Nxuseka specialises in etching, screen printing, lithography and linocut. Nxuseka has exhibited with the Artist Proof Studio at the Turbine Art fair 2017, 2018 and 2019. In 2020, he was part of an online exhibition on Gender Based Violence with Artist Proof Studio.
