Renowned South African visual artist Nelson Makamo launches his first independent US solo exhibition, “Blue,” to showcase his latest body of work.
The exhibition sees Makomo bring together an all-female group of black professionals to curate this show.
It was the diversity in the contemporary art landscape in inner-city Los Angeles that prompted Makomo and his team to select this location.
With a career spanning over a decade, the Limpopo-born artist’s work has been featured in group and solo exhibitions in South Africa, France, Italy, America, Netherlands, UK, Germany, Amsterdam and Scotland.
His most notable group exhibition was alongside established South African artists in “Ten Years of Printmaking: David Krut Print Studio in 2006”. Invited artists included David Koloane, Colbert Mashile, Deborah Bell and William Kentridge. His current exhibition is open to the public until November 20.
