Banele Khoza - 'Overthought'
Banele Khoza was in born in 1994 in Hlatikulu (a small rural town) in Eswatini. During high school, he moved to South Africa and is now based in Tshwane. He studied at the London International School of Fashion for a year, studying Fashion Design. Dismayed by the limited opportunities to draw he transferred to study Fine Arts at Tshwane University of Technology. On completion of his degree, he taught Drawing as well as Art Theory at the same institution. In 2018 he decided to stop teaching to work as a full-time artist and to launch a multi-purpose studio and gallery called BKhz in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
Banele Khoza is a man to watch, with a solo show at Zeitz MOCAA, the 2017 Gerard Sekoto Foundation award under his belt and a fleet of taxi’s covered in his work (as the result of him winning the SA Taxi Foundation Art Award) his work is going places. In 2019 he was named as one of the Mail and Guardian's 200 Young South Africans. Khoza’s lithographs, demonstrate his skill and dexterity. Khoza’s ability to embrace the unknown and to immerse himself in the technical possibilities of what lithography has to offer combined with the skills of Master Printer Mark Attwood have resulted in prints that reveal the artist’s gifts.
