Additional Images

Born in the semi-arid Kimberley in the Northern Cape of South Africa, Mafafo questions historical stereotypes around gender inequality in Africa. She primarily focuses on celebrating the black female and abstracted forms placing them in often verdant imaging characterised by lush greenery and sensuous drapery, that are far removed from the dusty mining town where she grew up. The artist has recently organised a group of Capetonian woman into an informal traditional embroidery society.
