Nelson Mchunu - Natal

 

 

 

Bushman - Nelson Mchumu - Proof Copy - Series 1 of  15

 

 

 

 

Nelson Mchunu was born of humble beginnings in 1970 in an area called Sweetwaters outside Pietermaritzburg, Kwa-Zulu Natal. He was unable to complete his schooling, due to political upheaval in the area and the necessity to support his blind mother. As a young boy he sought employment in people’s gardens, where he showed tremendous pride in his work. It was not long before his artistic ability was noticed.

 

 

 

 

Nelson lives with his wife and two children in their own home. His interest in choosing this study of a Bushman was sparked from his keen interest in the complex social make-up and unique lifestyle of the people. Nelson is an inspiring young South African artist and we are pleased to support him and look forward to his next sculpture.

Tete Nzusa

 

 

 

Tete Nzusa - The Eagle

 

Tate Nzusa was born in 1954 at Nkandla in the Gwebede district of Natal. He is an artist and musician. At the age of fifteen he began to carve for the people in his district.

 

 

 

 

Tete later moved to Johannesburg where he found himself unable to obtain work. As a result he made puppets, and together with a homemade tin guitar, did busking on the streets. Of special interest are his self made leather shoes, in which each toe fit into a compartment like a glove.

 

 

 

 

By 1995 Tete was living in Durban - selling his puppets to the BAT Shop (Bartel Arts Trust).  He also created sculptural objects in wood, which were painted and covered with thousands of tiny dots.

 

 

 

 

His work was snapped up straight away by art collectors and local museums curators alike. His work is represented in the Kwa Zulu Natal Provincial Collection and the Killie Campbell Library.
