RESTONE MAAMBO (1980 – )

Studied at the Ruth Prowse School of Arts, Cape Town

Youth is often marked with fantastical associations to our favorite cartoon heroes and characters, but the vibrancy and edgy colours of Spiderman and He-man laid down deeper influences on Maambo.

Maambo’s method of painting highly reflects the cartoonish elements that surface in comic books and television cartoons. He is delicate and gentle with his brushstrokes and puts a large amount of emphasis on creating the sharp and realistic detail.

Maambo also often attempts to capture the gracefulness and energy that settles in his female subjects. These women are often depicted in domestic activities or are lone figures set against undefined backgrounds, inviting us to examine their thoughts and intentions.
