Mbongeni Fakudze is a rapidly emerging mixed media fine artist born in Swaziland in 1982 and currently living and working in Johannesburg, South Africa.
He is greatly inspired by the identity of contemporary African women and the issues that surround them. He often depicts these women wearing headscarves which are a symbol of womanhood and power. He explores how society often values a contemporary Africa woman as a commodity. (For example, as money and power in the lobola system.)
Mbongeni’s expressive strokes, scrapes and splashes break down the face but on standing back they come together as a solid form. The woman is solid and non-solid; there and not there; complete and incomplete. The contemporary African woman is many things and nothing.
In 2005 he moved his studio to August House in Johannesburg where he met Benon Latuuya. Since then Benon has greatly influenced Mbongeni’s approach. Another great inspiration is German artist, Voka, with his spontaneous and expressive gesture.
