XOLANI MOSHANI (1984- )
Diploma, Craft and Design, Cape Peninsula Technikon, 2006
Moshani creates most of his work in his collective studio at the Castle of Good Hope, Cape Town. He paints with a vibrant palette in a technique that is reminiscent of Pointillism. Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of pure colour are applied in patterns to form an image. Artist, Georges Seurat developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism. Moshani borrows elements of the technique to construct his own idiosyncratic visions of Africa as he wishes her to be.
“I wish to see us moving freely across international borders without experiencing the intolerance of xenophobia. My Africa imagined is one in which people eat at the same table, share the same dish and show respect for one another. I see people of all different ages, from different backgrounds, socializing and sharing good times.” (Moshani, 2012)
