About this Item
Mokhethi, born in 1950, took the surname of his close relative Sydney Kumalo (born in 1935), whose influence can be seen in the present lot. Mokhethi studied from 1963 to 1966 at the Jubilee Art Centre, Johannesburg, under Ezrom Legae and Bill Hart, and then in 1969 at the Academy of Arts run by Peter Haden. He was awarded the Ernest Oppenheimer Study Grant in 1974, and in 1975 he furthered his studies at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In 1981 he won the PELMAMA prize (the Haenggi Foundation National Art Competition).
