DESCRIPTION AND CONDITION
DESCRIPTIONA really unusual and large original pastel artwork depicting THE FLUTIST. Drawn by the listed and very accomplished South African artist SIPHO MOKWENA (b 1960). The artwork is done on paper and it is framed in a very good quality wooden frame with double mount and protected by glass. The artist has signed the artwork at bottom left and dated it 1992. The painting measures 900 mm x 730 mm in the frame and the artwork alone measures 630 x 480 mm (it is big). You can see the artwork as it is sold in the image above. There are more images and further particulars below. Please have a look at them and ask a question if there is anything you are unsure about.
CONDITIONBoth the artwork and frame are in very good condition and it can be hung as is.
NOTES
SIPHO MOKWENA was an ANC activist who spent 1982 - 1985 in Angolan camps and was jailed as an MK operative between 1988 and 1991. The artwork on offer here was drawn just after his release from jail. His work has been exhibited extensively in South Africa as well as in the USA and Russia. His artworks are also displayed in several art museums - such as the Pretoria Art Museum, African Heritage Museum (Florida USA) and the art collection of the S A National Defence Force. The music theme is a recurring theme in his artworks. If this artwork interests you, please Google the artist for more information.

I believe that South African Black art has not come to it's own from a point of view of value and that the painting on offer here is an EXCELLENT INVESTMENT PIECE PRODUCED BY AN APARTHEID PROTEST ARTIST. Place your bid!
