Muso Masoabi

Self-taught artist, Muso Masoabi was born in Lesotho following his father’s exile from South Africa during apartheid.
His series, Kabeloamanong focuses on the Sotho cultural definition pertaining to the journey of manhood that extends beyond the homestead. Through gestural, semi-ab- stract portraits, the artist captures feelings of celebration through highly –saturated colour palettes, while juxtaposing it with an element of pain evident in his expressive mark-making. Muso has participated in a number of local and international group shows held in Port Elizabeth, Johnannesburg, America, Belgium and United Kingdom.
