Senzo Shabangu: Endless Journey at 142 Archive

‘Senzo Shabangu: Endless Journey’ is
an archive showcase
prints created by Senzo Shabangu during
his time working with David Krut Projects
between 2010 and 2015. 

‘Comfort’, a 2011 linocut print by Senzo Shabangu

Shabangu began exploring urban living and human nature through monotypes at the David Krut Workshop (DKW) in 2010. In 2011, he moved on to making linocuts at DKW Arts on Main and Jan Smuts Avenue as artist-in-residence in preparation of his solo first exhibition at David Krut Projects, Naked Pressure.

The artist continued to print at DKW creating linocuts and monotypes inspired by issues that influence everyday life for those living in South Africa. The artworks themselves become a way for him to understand his journey and himself within the chaos and infinite prospects of the Johannesburg cityscape. It is in this context that the city of Johannesburg, its people, the media, protest action, men in robes and judges are become underlying sources of imagery in the artist’s work.

 

The archive showcase is up at our 142 Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood.
